(San Antonio, TX – March 30, 2017) Parents who are looking for an affordable, quality summer program where their children will stay active and engaged, in a safe environment, are encouraged to register them to participate in the Parks and Recreation Department’s Summer Youth Program. Community Center site registration will be held on Saturday, April 1, at participating centers from 8 a.m. – noon.

The program runs June 12 through August 4, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Lunch and an afternoon snack are included. The program offers youth, ages six to 14, the opportunity to enjoy eight weeks of recreation-themed activities offered at 23 community centers. The program keeps youth active by engaging them in a variety of supervised, age appropriate activities such as sports, craft projects, active games, art exploration, fitness and nutrition, as well as math and science enrichment activities and participation with the San Antonio Public Library Summer Reading Program. Swimming opportunities are also offered for program participants at limited sites.

After April 1, community centers that still have openings will continue registration during regular business hours until all slots are full. Site capacities range from 40 to 125, depending on the center.

Registration for the Summer Youth Program, school sites, open to youth ages six to 12, will be held on Saturday, April 22, and on Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to noon, with registration locations and information to be announced.

Park curfews will be enforced for patron safety for the April 1 registration. Fees are based on a sliding scale, according to income and family size.
