It’s Time for Camp! | The Best Summer Camps in Canton, Texas

Posted: May 16, 2019 by Silver Spur Master

Summer’s almost here – the time of year when kids can’t wait for school to end and parents are planning the best way to keep them busy & having fun! If your kids are anything like ours, they’re happy about their summer freedom for about a week, then get bored and restless. What’s a mom or dad to do?

At the Silver Spur Resort, we’ve brought back our popular summer day camps. Our day camps are fun, first and foremost, but we’ve designed them to be educational, too – but not in a boring way. With different camps for kids of all interests and with flexible schedules, you can send your kiddos to multiple camps at a reasonable rate.

All campers get the full Silver Spur camp experience and will get to participate in a variety of activities like basketball, volleyball, fishing, nerf wars, water balloon fights, and more!

“My son was here for the outdoor adventure camp/ hunter’s ed and had a great time, was very well taken care of, he is still talking about all the important things he learned about the outdoors and hunting, thanks for putting all the time and effort into making the ‘typically boring’ hunter’s ed class interesting. And thanks to all the staff for all the work you put into it” ~Steve W., parent 

Here are our Summer 2023 Day Camps:

Baking Camp:

We can’t wait for our baking camp – we think that teaching kids how to cook safely and correctly is such an important life skill. They think it’s just plain fun! This camp is offered only one session this summer and is designed for ages 7-13.

Led by April Intlehouse, owner of The Confection Connection, this camp will focus on baking and decorating a variety of baked goods from scratch! During breaks, campers will be able to enjoy various activities at the resort.
