Can anyone recommend a summer day camp program for 10 year olds near Plano that involve swimming and other traditional camp experiences? We are relocating in the coming months and will need to sign the kids up before we even get there!

Also need a orthodonist recommendations in Plano/West Plano =) Thanks.

If your kids are members of the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, those programs have excellent day and resident camps. Girl Scout day camp registration usually begins in April or so.

The Dallas Morning News will be running a Summer Camp special section in the spring.

The City of Plano runs an extensive day camp program through its Park and Rec Department.

The Boy Scouts are on a different paradigm than the Girl Scouts. At that age, the offerings are a one-week day camp (4 hours long), and a 3-day resident camp. For both, you'd have to register through a local unit ( and already be part of it). That's not going to work for a new transplant likely looking for full-summer coverage.

The YMCA has excellent programs. Sent my kids there back in the day. We also like the SMU summer courses for kids on the same road as YMCA.

The YMCA has fabulous summer camps. They have a lake camp that runs all day 8-5 and fun. Horseback riding, boating, swimming, crafts, archery. Kids already talk about going back. All the fun of resident camp without the over night.

Thanks! I will definitiely look into the YMCA camps. I did look at the SMU camps and they seem to be academic....maybe we will do a mix of the two this summer. It helps to know that they are on the same road...thank you!

SMU Legacy has the best summer camps for children. You can choose from robotics to study skills to art and creative writing. They are set up to provide day-long care while your child actually learns something in the process. My children go every year. For more of a gross motor summer school experience, Sky Ranch offers day camp at Prestonwood Christian Academy and Trinity Christian Academy.

Check out Elvebak Orthodontics across from Willowbend mall. Two of my daughters just got their braces off over there. Beautiful work.

Good luck!

Shycastle, thank you so much! I just looked up the Sky Ranch camp and unfortunately the day camp prices aren't posted yet, but I will keep checking. Thanks also for the orthodontist rec!
