As parents search for options for children on spring break, places around Henderson have announced various opportunities.
BounceU, an indoor facility featuring inflatable obstacles and bouncing structures, is scheduled to host its spring break camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 14-18 at 1000 Stephanie Place.
The one-week camps costs $159 per child with a 10 percent discount for siblings.
BounceU has been in Henderson six years according to Mandy McElroy, general manager of BounceU Henderson.
“We are open year-round,” she said. “We are great for birthday parties or just after-school fun.”
McElroy said the facility has added equipment recently and made changes to the rooms so people get fresh experiences.
“There have been lots of improvements and changes over the years,” she said.
While continuing to offer its open bounce times throughout the week, McElroy said this year the organization is scheduled to offer a spring break camp.
Along with access to bounce rooms, snacks and arts and crafts activities are planned.
McElroy said there are also child care options before and after the camp for $8 an hour.
“It goes up to 6 p.m. and as early as 7:30 a.m.,” she said.
BounceU is also expected to have a summer camp June 9 through Aug. 22. Registration is open for summer.
“We did the summer camp the last two years,” she said. “People can sign up as long as there is space.”

She added that Henderson has other options including a Junior Lifeguard Clinic for youths 12 to 15 from 8 to 11 a.m. April 14-17 at the Heritage Park Aquatic Complex. The program costs $50.
“It serves as an introduction to our formal Junior Lifeguard program,” she said. “It gives kids a chance to learn what life guarding is about and see if maybe it’s something they wish to pursue by becoming a Junior Lifeguard.”
