EAC's Summer Day Camp
Fun in the Sun!
Extend-A-Care for Kids’ Curriculum Coordinator, Todd Kassens, has created an amazing summer
curriculum with plenty of fun activities, swimming trips every two weeks, fieldtrips every week, arts & crafts,
cooking, painting, sports, and much more. During summer break, Extend-A-Care's Born to Run Program
will offer children much needed physical challenges; summer is often a time when children shy away
from exercise, which is why we feel it is important that our children keep moving and get plenty of fresh
air. Our older children will go on an all day fieldtrip to
Splashtown; younger children will have an all day fieldtrip
day as well, but will visit several attractions. We will also be
holding our second annual summer event on July 25th at
Travis High School. For the event, children enrolled in our
summer day camp will spend half a day doing fun and
exciting summertime activities. Extend-A-Care summer
campers from all eleven summer sites will be there!
Sessions begin June 9 (June 4 for Hays CISD) and end the
week of August 11-15. To enroll your child in our Summer
Day Camp, please contact us at 512-472-9402.
Kiara and Hailee are enjoying a fun fieldtrip to
