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.
