Whether it’s for a mental health break or a child care backup, sometimes you just need a last-minute place to drop off your kids for a day. The following are some options at your fingertips:
HIT Indoor Training Center, LLC
1544 Campbell Rd.
Tim Heckler with HIT said boy and girl campers ages 6-12 can be dropped off for a single day, assuming the camp is not already full, which he said is not usually the case before the week of July 4.
The cost is $60 per day or $50 per if you pay for Monday-Thursday in advance.
“Our coaches work with them on batting drills and also practice on a machine,” Heckler said. “After lunch – bring a sack lunch – the coaches lead them though fielding drills and then they play comprehensive drills games like kickball and dodge ball.”
Students can walk in if camp is not full, but they prefer you sign up in advance at www.hitindoor.com.
Ready Flip Go
11546 Northwest Fwy.
Katy Fenton said Ready Flip Go offers two options for ages 3-11, and the children must be potty trained. The first option is a Drop ‘n’ Shop on Wednesdays from 9 a.m.-noon for June and July. The price is $25 per day with sibling discounts available.
The other option is a Day Camp from July 29-Aug. 23 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Campers can sign up for a day or two or the whole week. The charge is $45 per day with sibling discounts available. Parents should send a lunch and snacks.
“We play games, do a gymnastics lesson, work on skills-related obstacle courses and have some free play,” Fenton said. “It helps if parents register at least the night before, but walk-ins are available. Camp is filling up already, so we suggest that people sign up as soon as possible.”
Texas Rock Gym
1526 Campbell Rd.
If climbing is something that appeals to your kids, the staff will teach them how in a safe environment. Campers must be at least 5 years old and no older than 17. Single-day registration is $75 and capped at no more than 20 single-day participants per day. Full-day hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Drop-off starts at 8 a.m. with pick-up by 5 p.m. Late pick-up is available for an additional $10.
Kids should bring a healthy lunch, a drink and at least two snacks. A water bottle is also a great idea so they can refill from the water fountain throughout the day.
