The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Department will host Sunny Dayz Camps again this summer, giving children 6-15 years of age a chance to spend the summer months taking part in a number of outdoor activities.

The program, held at both Rob Fleming Park and Bear Branch Park recreation centers, begins June 1 and runs through Aug. 18.

Michael Corbett, a camp director at the Rob Fleming Recreation Center, said a typical day at the camp varies but can consist of many activities, including group games, swimming in an on-site pool, kayaking, archery, trips to the park and crafts projects.

“We go swimming a lot,” he said. “Most weeks, probably three to four times a week, we’ll go to the pool.”

In addition to the activities at the recreation center, Corbett said the group takes frequent field trips to local attractions.


“Usually once or twice a week we’ll go on a field trip, to like Main Event or to the movies or rock climbing,” he said.

The program started more than 10 years ago, but the department made an addition three years ago when it created a teen camp for individuals ages 13-15, Corbett said.

The younger groups are split into ages 6-8 and 9-12.

At any given time, 100-150 kids are participating in the summer camp at each center, Corbett said.

The summer program will begin registration in mid-March. Families can register on The Woodlands Township website or by calling the Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park. Registration is flexible with daily, three-day or weekly rates.

“It’s open to anybody; you don’t have to be a resident [to register],” Corbett said.

Dates: June 1-Aug. 18

Cost: $50 (per day) • $125 (three days), $200 (five days)
