At Elevate Trampoline Park, an indoor jump center, guests can somersault and catapult across a slew of trampoline-lined arenas. The safely padded trampolines stretch from wall to wall, granting guests enough room to jump in place among friends or attempt aerial stunts. The center's two dodge-ball courts put a twist on the traditional game by adding a trampoline element, and three slam-dunk courts let players feel the thrill of a game-winning shot without the limitations of gravity or a strict pro basketball contract. For even more aerial thrills, the bungee-jump bounce lets guests hurtle more than 25 feet in the air from the safety of a bungee cord, while a 24-foot rock-climbing wall grants the fun of an outdoor climb amid indoor comforts. When the sun goes down, DJ music and colorful lights turn the bouncy arena into an all-out party.

Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.

Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.

A coalition of ice arenas endorsed by the Dallas Stars, Dr Pepper StarCenters help nurture athletes of all ages and skill levels with activities on or off the ice. Dr Pepper StarCenters house NHL-regulation ice-hockey rinks that host hockey leagues for players of all ages, eradicating the need to play on dangerous frozen lakes dotted with irritable frozen geese. StarCenters' skate academies instill students with the fundamentals of ice hockey or figure skating, allowing them to progress to hockey leagues and local skating competitions if they choose. To warm up after laps around the Euless ice rink, skaters can check out the onsite baseball stadium, batting cages, soccer fields, and Texas Star Golf Course. All locations are open for birthday parties and special events; see each location's website for details.
