Summertime is quickly approaching and some may need a place for their child to spend their summer days! The City of Tyler’s Glass Recreation Center’s (GRC) Summer Camp is perfect for children to spend their time playing, learning and building lifelong friendships in a safe, supervised environment.

GRC Summer Camp is for children ages six to ten and will include fun-filled activities like sports, games, swimming, arts and crafts, an education enrichment program, special events and much more. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day of the camp by the East Texas Food Bank Summer Food Program. 


Camp registration opens April 3. Summer Camp will begin June 6 and run through Aug. 4 on Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost to participate is $100 per child for nine weeks. Partial payment is due at registration.  All fees must be paid before June 7. Space is limited to 75 campers and will be given on a first come, first serve basis.


A mandatory meeting for parents of participating children will be held on Monday, June 5 at 6 p.m. at Glass Recreation Center. At the meeting, parents will meet camp leaders, camp rules will be discussed and a camp activity calendar will be distributed.
