The City of Carrollton will initially allow 30 registrations for 2021 Camp Wonder due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. All potential participants beyond that number will be placed on a waitlist. Keep in mind, the waitlist is not a guaranteed spot in Camp Wonder. Parents will be made aware if and when the City decides to open up more registered spaces in Camp.

Camp Wonder is a summer camp program for children ages 5 to 12 and with varying abilities. Camp Wonder operates with a state-approved licensing exemption and follows City Council-approved Standards of Care. This summer is going to be different than previous years, but the Carrollton Parks & Recreation Department strives to create and ensure a safe and secure environment for all participants. 

Participating in youth day camps enhances risks of campers being in direct contact with anyone age 65 or older for 14 days after the end of camp session.

SAFETY

CPARD continuously strives to create an environment in which all participants with or without special needs feel safe, secure, and without obstacles to participate in any program. If your child needs additional accommodations, please call 972-466-4862 at least two weeks prior to start of camp session.  

With concerns regarding the coronavirus, we have implemented the below safety precautions:

  • Camp staff are required to wear face masks and gloves when interacting with campers.
  • A bottle of hand sanitizer will be in each homeroom and each counselor will always have a small bottle with them.

  • Counselors have been split between Units and will stay with the same campers for the duration of the summer.  
  • Coordinators will be designated to a specific Unit for the duration of the summer.  
  • Campers will each have their own arts & crafts kits so there will be no sharing of general supplies. This equipment will be sanitized daily.  
  • All gym equipment has been divided up between the 3 Units. This equipment will be sanitized after each game.  
  • Units will not interact with each other. Units have been split between restrooms and will stagger when rotating between homerooms, gym, and outside.  
  • Regular hand washing breaks have been scheduled between activities.  
  • Drop-off/Pickup will take place outdoors.  
  • No visitors including parents will be allowed in the camper areas.
