Spring break is just around the corner.

Parents looking for fun activities to keep their children busy March 11-15 can check out Camp Heights hosted by the Harker Heights Parks and Recreation Department.

A weeklong program for children ages 5 to 11, Camp Heights was developed to help children stay active and out of trouble during spring break.

“We provide a positive environment, and an outlet when school’s out … some come from different schools and areas so they make new friends,” said Nichole Broemer, events coordinator.

This year’s camp theme is “The Great Outdoors” and features board games, card games, educational games, movies, visits to the public library and activities in the recreation center.

“We are going to do indoor and outdoor games and visit our park,” Broemer said. “They usually have a great time with us, and toward the end of the week, they will receive a St. Patrick’s Day button for the holiday.”

Camp hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Cost is $60 for Harker Heights residents and $65 for nonresidents. Parents can register their children at the recreation center through Wednesday. For more information, call Broemer at (254) 953-5465.
