Parks & Playground Program (School Year)

The perfect opportunity for boys and girls currently in Kindergarten to 5th Grades participate in fun, safe, and cooperative activities where they can be creative, develop skills and make friends in an outdoor setting.  Although Leaders encourage participation, children are not required to participate in scheduled programs.
