IMPORTANT NOTE: Summer Academy is a FREE oppportunity for Boys & Girls, Grades K-8th to participate in their choice of classes during 3 weeks in June. Children can participate in one or in as many classes as they would like. Classes sizes are limited and we will not extend beyond these limits. A waiting list will be created once a class is filled. Registrations are not completed until they are in the computer software. For this reason, we highly encourage you to register ONLINE to secure your child(s) spot in our classes.

Class content will not change from week to week, therefore, we ask that you do NOT sign your child up for the same class week to week. Select classes do have a supply requirement that will be listed within the class description that we ask you respect. To make sure class content is age appropriate, age groups will not be negotiable. ‘R’ Recreation staff will be available in between classes to assist children if needed, but it is expected that children will be able to walk to and from each class on their own.
