Lubbock Parks & Rec. hosts holiday camps

Posted by Ben Lawson  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - With the holidays comes school breaks. Many students are already out of class, but their parents may not be. So keeping them occupied can be a challenge.

Children can once again take part in holiday camps organized by the Lubbock Parks and Recreation Department. Camp starts Monday at 5 Lubbock Community Centers.  Organizers say it's important to provide a place for kids to go. "We feel like it's important for kids not to be latch-key kids, even during the holiday, even during that short periods of time, so we try to fill that need in the community," Nancy Neill with Lubbock's Parks and Recreation Department said. 

Children will play games, take part in arts and crafts, and some will also take short field trips. Cost ranges from $7 to $16 a day. The department does ask folks to pre-register, so you may not be able to get your child in this weeks, but they have four more camp days from December 28th to the 31st.

Just give the Lubbock Parks and Recreation Department a call at (806) 775-2673 and they'll help you register.
