Temple Parks and Recreation is gearing up for an exciting summer with nearly two dozen Summer Camps to choose from.

“Whether it’s cooking, cowboys or cheer, we have opportunities for students of all ages and interests to learn and have fun this summer,” Program Coordinator Belinda Garcia said.

The department is offering nearly two dozen camps, covering a wide range of topics. There is currently a waiting list for full-day camps, but mini camps are still available for preschoolers through age 17.
