Summer Recreation Program

Summer Recreation Program

The Summer Recreation Program offers a variety of recreation activities for children ages 3 – 11. They will enjoy a wide variety of sports, games, arts and crafts, guest speakers and more! This fun program keeps children outdoors and active all summer! All SRP sites are led by trained recreation leaders. There are 2 sessions to choose from, Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursdays. You may only enroll your child in one of the sessions.

Discipline

There is a “three-strike” disciplinary system for SRP. Examples of behaviors that would result in a yellow, orange or a red card include: inflicting physical harm upon others, continuously wandering away from the group, disregarding what leaders ask of them, generally ignoring rules and opting out of participation. This procedure is to ensure the safety of the group and create the best possible experience for all participants. If a child receives two red cards, we will ask that they not return to SRP this summer.

Leaders will keep to the established discipline policy and will handle all incidents with kindness, consistency and understanding. Attention will be given to the specific needs of each child while, at the same time, each is encouraged to participate. Leaders will discuss the rules of SRP throughout the summer.

All participants must be independent in the six activities of daily living: using the restroom, eating, bathing, dressing, transferring (i.e. walking) and continence. If your child requires an accommodation to participate, please let us know when you register.
