Holiday Craze

Holiday Craze Canceled


Holiday Craze is a recreational day camp program operated by the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Department. Holiday Craze is open to children ages 6-12 years.

The Spring session is set to meet at the Farmers Branch Community Recreation Center, 14050 Heartside Place, Farmers Branch. Renovations at the Recreation Center may cause a relocation of the Holiday Craze during spring break. Please check back  for updates.
