Summer is almost here, and parents across the Ark-La-Tex are freaking out over plans for their kids when schools out.  Luckily, the city of Shreveport has your back!

The Shreveport Public Assembly & Recreation (SPAR) department is hosting a free, 9 week camp and a 2 week pre-camp for kids aged 6 to 14 years old.  The structured camps will help kids focus on fitness, arts and crafts, board games, and educational field trips (including an awesome trip to the Shreveport Aquarium) while allowing their parents to work free from the worry that their kids will be bored stiff (and possibly mischievous) over the summer holiday.

According to the official SPAR page, the camps will be held Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all community centers.  If you'd like to take advantage of this awesome program, you'll need to sign up right away.  There is no cost, but availability is limited.  Registration for the program is on a first-com-first-served basis.
