What’s not to love – super cool challenges performed all over the “world” while learning about other cultures and competing for prizes! Teams will race to find the clues that will give them the instructions to complete each leg of the race. Clues can either be: “Route Info” where teams will need to follow the instructions on the card to receive the next clue, “Detours” where teams are given a choice of two activities to complete as a team in order to receive the next clue, or “Road Blocks” where only one team member must complete the task in order to move ahead. Are you ready for your first clue?” If you answered yes, come join our summer camp! An additional $5 supply fee will be charged for this camp.

Choosing a Camp
When choosing a camp for your preschooler, look for camps based on the child’s age at the time of the camp. Campers must be potty trained, and a change of clothes will be necessary for children ages 36 months to 5 years. Camps for preschoolers include a 15-minute quiet time. For elementary grade campers, choose a camp for the grade just completed. You do not have to be a resident of Allen or a student in Allen ISD to attend our camps.
