There are summers when you can make time to travel for a family vacation, and then there are busy summers where an overscheduled calendar keeps you tied to home and work. If that sounds like your family’s upcoming summer schedule, it’s possible to get the escape you deserve and still make all your commitments. Mini-escape? Staycation? Whatever you choose to call it, you can find it minutes away at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, Texas’ original urban resort. The beauty and relaxing vibe of the luxury resort itself is enough reason to tell the kids to pack their bags. And here are five more.
Kids Camp Free.
Anything that involves the word “free” when it comes to kids and summer is the best deal around, and at Four Seasons Resort Dallas, kids camp free when they stay at the property. Camp Four Seasons is a dynamic camp program available all summer for kids 4 and up. Choose from four-day tennis camps, golf camps, and swing, serve, and splash camp experiences. The best value of all? They will receive instruction from USTA certified tennis instructors and certified PGA professionals who expertly teach the fundamentals in each sport.

Start Summer Right.
Why wait? Book your staycation and kick off the summer Memorial Day weekend, May 24 to 27 and enjoy an action-packed three days of fun for the whole family. Enjoy poolside dining followed by a dive-in showing of Aladdin at dusk, s’mores by the campfire, Saturday pool games, giant water slide, sports mini-camp, airbrush tattoos, and educational programs. Sundays kick off with a kids’ Texas art class followed by Sunday brunch at the Resort’s famed LAW restaurant and more pool time with a live DJ. Mom and dad can enjoy cocktail tastings in the lobby, live music at OUTLAW Taproom, a variety of chef-inspired dining experiences, champagne saber Saturdays, and—of course—access to Four Seasons legendary golf, tennis and fitness programs at Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club.
Learn and Give.
During your stay, the kids can learn more about giving back through good deeds by participating in the Dallas nonprofit Paper for Water’s Philanthropy Summer Camp. Isabelle (15) and Katherine (13) Adams started Paper for Water seven years ago in Dallas with one mission – to save lives by helping provide clean water to those in need, one piece of paper at a time by crafting origami ornaments. They have raised more than $1.7 million and funded more than 190 clean water projects around the world. Kids who attend this camp during their stay will learn about art, science, the importance of clean water, and philanthropy. To learn more about Paper for Water, visit paperforwater.org.
Your new July 4th Tradition.
Join the Resort for a celebration to remember July 5 to 8 and create new memories for the entire family. In addition to a full regular weekend of activities, the Resort will host a Saturday evening festival from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on the driving range with bounce houses, face painters, water slides, music by the LIVE 80 band, a beer garden, food trucks, and more. The evening concludes with a spectacular choreographed firework show on the 18th green of TPC Four Seasons golf course. You’ll return home wanting to make this your annual family tradition.
Museum and Zoo Experience.
The kids can get up close and personal with some of their favorite animals from the Dallas Zoo every Saturday. Animal educators will be at the Resort each weekend showcasing six to eight friendly critters and teaching about their unique traits, habitats, eating preferences, and more. Perot Museum of Nature & Science will also visit the Resort every Saturday for fun, hands-on science and education experiences for kids of all ages. Each weekend features a different topic as part of the museum’s traveling outreach program–Nature Investigators, Robotics 101, All About Bugs, Physics Fun, Air and Weather, Dig Those Dinos, the LEGO Catapult Challenge, and more.
