Camps
When school is out we can't very well call what we do an after-school program, so SPAR conducts camps.
  • Thanksgiving break is Harvest Camp
    • Registration for 2014 Harvest Camp opens November 3rd.  The deadline to register is November 17th.  SPAR Community Centers accept applications on a first-come-first-served basis.  The Camp is free, however, registration is required.  And, space is limited!
  • Christmas vacation is Winter Camp
    • Registration for 2014 Winter Camp opens December 1st.  The deadline to register is December 15th.  SPAR Community Centers accept applications on a first-come-first-served basis.  The Camp is free, however, registration is required.  And, space is limited!
  • Spring break is Spring Camp
    • The Spring Break Camp is Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 6 PM at all of our community centers.  The Spring Break Camp is for children ages 6 to 11 and Teen Spring Break Camp is for youth ages 12 to 17. 
      The Spring Break Camp is free to the public however, registration is required.

  • Summer vacation is Summer Playground!
    • SPAR Summer Playground is almost an entity unto itself. Over 900 children annually participate in this program and it includes:
      • Earth Camp
      • Law and youth camp
      • LSU-Ag center sites
      • Museums
      • Spray grounds
      • Swimming pools
      • Tinseltown
      • Trips to Safety Town
      • Other special trips the center staff arrange

      In addition, there are:
      • Guest speakers
      • Parties
      • Special instruction in:
        • Art
        • Dance
        • Golf
        • Musical theater
        • Physical fitness
        • Tennis
The dates correspond exactly to the Caddo Parish School Calendar, so when your child is on vacation, we're open for camp (except during those vacation days which are also city holidays).

Registration
You must register your child for each of the camps, but the good news is that you do it on the same form used for the After-School Program. Advanced registration is required because the camps fill up very quickly. Check with the staff at your community center of choice so you can beat the rush.
