The Recreation and Community Services Department is offering a variety of winter activities this season. A Winter Kids Camp is held at Baldwin Stocker Elementary School, 422 E. Lemon Ave. The camp is open to elementary school age children in grades 1-5 and provides a safe, supervised, kid friendly retreat during winter vacation. The dates are December 26-28, 2012 and January 2-4, 2013 from 9am-5pm for a cost of $20 per day. Sign your child up for one day or all six. The camp is filled with fun group activities including crafts, cooking, board games, movies, snacks and more. Supervision is generally on a ratio of one Recreation Leader for each group of 10 children. Groups will be organized by age and grade level.
Kids Night Out held at the Arcadia Community Center, 365 Campus Drive is on Friday, December 21, 2012 (Winter Wonderland) and January 11, 2013 (Happy Penguins). Kids Night Out provides kids a night of fun and play so mom and dad enjoy an evening out or a quiet evening at home. Recreation Staff and Volunteens offer themed games, movies, dinner, snacks and supervision for children ages 4 and above. Accommodations cannot be made for special dietary needs. The cost is $15 per child and is held from 6-11pm.
Pre-registration is mandatory for all of our activities and a $2 registration fee is applicable for those participants not registered in any other winter classes. On-line, mail-in, walk-in and fax-in registrations have begun.
