Fun Summer Activities
Well, friends, the summer months are upon us and it’s time to switch gears to accommodate the increased temperatures and scheduling activities for the kids. There’s something about kids and summer that often puts adults in a quandary. Too many hours and not enough activities leave kids bored, which can lead to trouble. Look no further; you can count on the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department to offer a wide variety of youth programs to keep everyone active.

|Pre-school aged children have a variety of activities in which they can participate including Swim Lessons, Summer Tiny Tots, Language Camps, Itty Bitty Art, and, new this summer, Funtastic Fitness exercise class and Music Fandango pre-school music camps. Music Fandango Music Camps are live, concert-style, interactive learning experiences. Children and their parent/guardian participate together in this fun-filled, high-energy class where the fun never stops. To introduce the community to our new music teacher Francyl Gawryn, she will perform at Spring Jamobree at 9 a.m. prior to the Little Miss and Mr. Pageant.
For those parents who work or are looking for a structured recreation environment for your children, the Summer Parks Safekey program for grades Kindergarten through Fifth is just the right program, with a balance of scheduled activities, free play with youths their own age and field trips. Summer Parks Safekey kids play outdoor sports, do arts and crafts, visit the pool and Splash Park, play board games, watch movies and sometimes they just like to “hang out” and visit with friends. All of this is provided in a supervised environment with a caring dedicated staff who want to spend time with your children.
The Youth Center for grades Sixth through Twelfth is open from 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Noon 8 p.m. on Friday. The program offers a supervised environment for video games, foosball, movies, pool, ping pong, crafts and games that are exclusive to the Youth Center. Special activities are planned monthly and may include basketball, volleyball, cooking classes, arts and crafts and field trips that are the talk of the town.
