Summer 2022!

We are so excited to be running Playgrounds this summer! Participants will be playing games, doing crafts and enjoying themed days! 

Participants can be added to our Program Request List online, or by calling 625-8463. 

After being added to the Request List, families will be emailed program information and a Participant Information Form. 

Site runs from 9:30am-4pm. We ask that all kids come with full water bottles, sunscreen, nut-safe lunch and snacks, and weather-appropriate clothing and athletic footwear!
