ABOUT THE PROGRAM

This program will keep kids ages 7-12 active and entertained during the summer months. We will meet at our parks three days a week for sports, arts & crafts, games, and more!  See below for our tentative schedule, program rules, program leaders' bios, and important parent info.  Space is limited as we only accept 100 children into the program each year.  The fee is $25 per child for the summer.
