A Georgetown Summer
We are in the dog days of summer, and your kiddos may be getting antsy. You need a solution fast before the stress gives you gray hair! We have just what you need to keep you and your kids entertained this summer—right here in Georgetown.
Streaming (as in water, not binging on Netflix) is a summer staple. So send your kids to Georgetown Parks & Recreation Adventure Camps instead of the TV room to get their streaming fix. Ages 12-16 can try X-Stream H2O Sports with sailing on the Brazos River, whitewater kayaking, wakeboarding on a cable lake, and snorkeling in the San Marcos River. Ages 12-16 can travel to Galveston Island for four days of saltwater adventures like crabbing, fishing, kayaking, paddle board surfing, and beach play. Choose from 3 camps, 2 X-Streams in July and the Galveston trip in August.
Just want a day trip or two instead of a full camp? Visit Blue Hole Park on the South Fork of the San Gabriel River, five blocks north of downtown. Pack up the kids and a picnic lunch to splash and wade in the river and large waterfall. Enter at W. Second Street and Rock Street behind El Monumento restaurant. Park free at the corner of 3rd Street and Rock Street in the lot or garage.
Everyone needs more drama in their lives, right? No? OK then, how about more dancing and singing? That’s the ticket! You and your kids get more of both when you take advantage of the Georgetown Palace Theatre’s summer programs.
Kids in 1st to 12th grades experience the rush of rehearsing and performing a produced show in just two weeks—no previous experience is required! Choose from a soccer show for 1st to 3rd graders and a Queen-tribute musical called We Will Rock You Young Part for 7th to 10th graders. Or get on the waitlist for other productions like The Day the Internet Died. Camps run 9 am – 4 pm Monday through Friday, and the kids perform the weekend after their summer program.
If you’re feeling left out, there’s plenty of fun for adults, too! Get a summer show package with four tickets and eight concession vouchers to see any performance of Once on This Island, Leading Ladies, or Crazy For You.
For a fun and educational getaway, take them to the Williamson Museum to explore the unique culture and heritage of Williamson County and the Historic Williamson County Courthouse. Visit noon – 5 pm Wednesday to Friday and 10 am – 5 pm Saturday. Stop by from 6 to 8 pm on the First Friday of each month for an evening of fun!
