This program is designed to get your children out of the house and active in a safe, inclusive and supportive activity. Our dedicated staff are committed to providing a positive environment for all participants. Your children will learn new skills, become more confident, and make new friends. Children must be accompanied to the playground site by a parent or guardian unless permission has been given in your registration for them to walk to and from home to our program.

The Playground Program will offer endless opportunities for your child ages 6-12 to have a fun and a memorable summer. Our half-day summer playground program is designed to spark your child’s imagination, grow new friendships, and assist them in discovering adventure and enjoyment in outdoor play. With creatively planned activities, campers enjoy a safe community to keep them structured and busy!
