Recreation Afterschool Program (RAP)

ARPD's Recreation Afterschool Program (RAP) is our supervised recreation after school program for boys and girls who are enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th Grades for certain elementary schools in Alameda.


RAP is offered to those in Kindergarten to 5th Grades at park sites throughout Alameda.  RAP site assignments are based on child’s school (see RAP flyer for more information).  At this time, participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from program each day.  Per Alameda County Health Dept. guidelines, drop-in programs will not be offered at this time.

Once school resumes in-classroom learning, students may be in one educational cohort and one extracurricular cohort.  This means that a student is able to participate in in-person school or an educational cohort (e.g. distance learning support) and then one additional cohort, like athletics, after school child card or an extracurricular activity.

ARPD Programs follow all Alameda County Health protocols.  This includes masks, hand washing, facility cleaning and small groups.  Safety for participants, staff and community is our top priority.

ARPD youth afterschool program activities will emphasize:

  • Recreation (sports, active games, fitness)
  • Enrichment (arts & crafts, science, passive and social games, cooking)
  • Youth Development (safety community/team building, positive relationship building, skill building)

Programs will incorporate many of the same activities you may be accustomed to, with additional safety measures taken by ARPD to keep participants and their families as safe as possible from COVID-19.

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday:  2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
  • Wednesday:  1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

All participants must be picked up by 5:30 p.m.  Starting at 5:31 p.m., a late fee of $1 per minute will be charged for late pick-ups, payable that day.  If you are more than 30 minutes late, we will contact the Alameda Police Department to pick up your child and take him/her to the Police Station.  If late pick ups are a consistent problem, we will take further appropriate action.
