The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department runs the Latchkey Program which offers an after school program, school break day camps and summer camps. It is licensed by the Texas Health and Human Services.

Our dynamic and creative staff is trained in child development and age-appropriate activities to encourage engagement from the children. All staff are certified in CPR and First Aid. Children build positive self-esteem through their involvement in a wide-range of activities which include recreation and fitness skills.
