City Parks and Recreation Department Offering Summer Latchkey

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The City of Corpus Christi's Parks and Recreation Department is once again offering a latchkey summer camp for children from five to 13 years old.

The camps will be held at public schools in six locations around the area. Those schools include:

Dawson - 6321 Sanders
Fannin - 2730 Gollihar
Schanen - 5717 Killarmet
Wilson - 3925 Ft. Worth
Calallen Magee - 4201 Calallen
Flour Bluff High School - 2505 Waldron Road

Camp managers say it's the least expensive summer camp in the area.

"We don't want the kids to stay at home," Program Manager Margaret Morin said. "We want them to come to the summer camps because it's educational as well as recreational."

Last year, the state certified camps averaged some 800 kids a month. The cost is $79 a week, and registration takes place from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, May 10, at the Corpus Christi Gym at 3202 Cabaniss Parkway.
