Holiday Craze Spring Session

Ages 6 - 12 | March 15 - 19 | Farmers Branch Historical Park

Holiday Craze is a recreational day-camp program operated by the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Department. Holiday Craze is open to children ages 6-12 years (as of March 15, 2021). The program will meet at the Farmers Branch Historical Park located at 2540 Farmers Branch Lane March 15 - 19, 2021. Holiday Craze campers will spend the week experiencing the great outdoors and taking a walk back in time. Some rustic fun is in store, including campfire cooking, fishing, nature hikes, and plenty of outdoor games. Campers will also tour the Park’s historical structures, shop at the Park’s General Store, create keepsake crafts, and experience a little bit of outdoor “glamping”.

Agenda for the week

Due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus, camp details are subject to change. The Farmers Branch Community Recreation Center cares deeply about the safety and well-being of the camp participants and will maintain the most up-to-date safety protocols as deemed appropriate by City and state leaders and health officials.
