The Parks and Recreation Department invites parents to register their children on Saturday, April 6, to participate in the Summer Youth Program. Participants will enjoy eight weeks of recreation –themed activities offered at 23 community centers. The program keeps youth, ages six to 14, active by engaging them in a variety of games, sports, arts and crafts, and a weekly enrichment program in fine arts, science and fitness/nutrition.
Registration will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at participating centers.
After April 6, community centers that still have openings will continue registration during regular business hours until all slots are full. Openings range from 40 to 125, depending on the center.
Registration for Summer Youth Program school sites, open to youth ages six to 12, will be held on Saturday, May 4, and on Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to noon, with registration locations and information to be announced.
The program runs from June 17 through Aug. 9, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Lunch and an afternoon snack are included.
