City of Dallas opens summer camp registration June 20

Summer Camps

Dallas Park and Recreation will offer six weeks of youth and teen camp activities July 6 - August 7 at 13 recreation centers!

For camp registration, here's what parents need to know!

  • Registration will be a lottery drawing at 9:45 a.m. on June 20 at 13 recreation centers. Go to for center locations.  
  • Registration will be on the center parking lot with families remaining in their cars.
  • From 8 to 9:30 a.m., families will receive information forms that will be entered into the lottery drawing. It is not necessary to arrive earlier than 8 a.m. as the drawing is randomly selected and being early will not provide an advantage.
  • Families must be present at the time of the drawing (9:45 a.m.) to claim a spot.
  • Recreation center camps will have only (24) spots available at each center.
  • Camp spots are reserved for Dallas residents only. Bring proof of residency.
  • Summer camp registration ends once designated slots are filled June 20 or on June 26, whichever occurs first.
  • Go to for more camp information and registration details!
