Parents Check Out These Summer Camps In El Paso
The end of the school year is right around the corner and if you are looking for a summer camp for your kiddos, now is the time to get them signed up and ready to go. There are a lot of little camps all over town, but these three are some of the bigger camps. You might have to be put on a waiting list because they are so popular but they're worth it.
If your beasties are into animals, the El Paso Zoo camp is just the ticket for a little summer fun. I've taken my boys and my granddaughters to these camps and they always have a lot of fun and end up learning a lot. The Zoo has in-person camps for kids ages 6 to 10 years old. There are different camps to choose from throughout the summer. They are all from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday. For non-Zoo members the camps are $110 per week. For military nonmembers they are 100 a week. If you are an active zoo member the camps are $95 a week. You can register online by clicking here, or call 915-212-0966.
