Summer Youth Program
Registration on tap

Girls play game

Summer is right around the corner. Now is the time to plan for those great summer activities that will nurture and grow children while they're out of school. That includes the Parks and Recreation Department's Summer Youth Program. Registration for this affordable, quality program is underway. The next round of school site registration is slated for May 9 from 8 a.m. to noon. Registration began for our Community Center sites on March 28 and will continue until all centers have full rosters. School sites welcome youngsters ages six to 12 while our Community Centers welcome youth ages six to 14 for eight weeks of recreation themed activities. The fun ranges from traditional sports to art exploration to fitness and nutrition to math and science enrichment. Something for everyone!

Jane Dubel has served as the Thunderbird Hills Neighborhood Association president for 12 years.
