Many Austin parents rely on Extend-A-Care for Kids for engaging afterschool programs, but did you know that they also offer Summer Day Camp at sites all over the Austin area? Their summer program provides a mix of awesome learning activities, plenty of fun, and a chance to make new friends and lasting memories.

Throughout the summer children can experience a variety of enriching activities such as basketball, soccer, baseball, flag football, arts & crafts, cooking, painting, go on swim field trips and much more! The theme for this year’s summer curriculum is “Around the World in 50 Days”, in which students will embark on a multicultural fantasy voyage around the world learning the customs, crafts, and cuisine of destinations as diverse as Africa and Alaska, from the rainforest to the Sahara! Click here for more info about the curriculum.

The Extend-A-Care for Kids Summer Camp will feature 15 exciting clubs with a focus on film, fitness, drawing, LEGO robotics, photography and more. These clubs rotate through the sites during the summer so that each child will have a chance to participate.

Children will have opportunities to learn coding, explore in the deconstruction zone, create music with Makey Makey equipment, challenge themselves with weekly STEM challenges, and develop unique creations through exploration. There will also be a “fun zone” set up daily for children to participate in bowling, table games, drums and keyboards.

Camps are priced to be very affordable for Austin families at a weekly rate of $190 per child ($180 per second child). The participating sites offer camps for children 5-12 years:
