Summer Playground Registration

Information about the Summer Playground Program

Video: Summer Recreation

The Playground Recreation Program offers summer recreation programs for children 6 through 11 years old at various elementary schools during the summer months.

These programs provide planned, organized and supervised activities designed to meet the recreational needs of children that attend.

Summer Playground Program

The Playground Recreation summer program usually runs 7 to 8 weeks during the summer months. Starting and ending dates vary from each school site depending on the school availability.

How to: Registration

Registration for the Summer Programs is held at each Playground Program Summer site and each site participant limit will vary from site to site. The registration is held on a first-come first-served basis.

If you are unable to register on the first day of registration, you will still be allowed to register your child in the program at any time during the regular program hours, provided there is still space available for additional participants.

Full Registration & Waiting Lists

Once a site registration is full, a waiting list will be kept and maintained. Parents will be notified as space becomes available.

Registration Required

A completed registration form is required for all children that attend the program.

For safety reasons, if we do not have a registration form, the child will not be allowed to attend this program.
