I just learned to my alarm that my kids' schools start back later then they have in the past. One starts back August 22nd and one returns right after Labor Day. Since it's too hot at that point to throw them outside all day I'm looking for some day camp options. Does anyone know of some good options that will offer day camps in August?

Try the zoo and the science and history museum. I think YMCAs offer day camps in the summers and I believe they're pretty flexible about picking and choosing weeks.

Most of the camps have already registered
I would be surprised if you can find something in the better regarded camps now

Do they go to private school that they have a late start?

You might consider special pay-for "schools" meant for activities like coding or math

Someone we know in Austin has her son (8 I think now) going to a Percy Jackson "myths and gods" type of camp where there are various role-playing adults on site who have taken on identities of God/goddesses/characters in Jackson's YA novels...
It sounds wonderful for an imaginative child into those books or mythology but have not heard there are any in DFW area

They go to private schools. The Percy Jackson camp is offered by the independent bookstore BookPeople. It's supposed to be amazing. It fills up as soon as registration opens in the late fall. I'm thinking about signing my older son up for it next summer. He absolutely loves Percy Jackson.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Yes--didn't know about it before she mentioned on FB...
Percy Jackson books didn't exist when my son was young but he would have loved it

I am sure her son will too

And from some things I saw online there are kids who come from out of the country for those camps--
They have them in other areas--Brooklyn and Wichita Falls were two besides Austin's I found
You would think that Dallas would be prime spot with all the money and yuppies wanting their kids to do something unique...

But from the website there is lot of work (needless to say there is for any camp) and lot of people are involved...chariot races with pedicabs being one...many volunteers/paid camp members who have their own half-blood story line---
So much like Civil War reenactors or those with Renaissance Fair characters....
