Summer Youth RecreationFun in the Summer Sun!
The Summer Recreation Program is a 6-week program that runs Monday through Thursday. Children who live in Brooklyn (& Oregon School District*) are welcome to spend time in this program for a safe place to have fun, socialize and learn a little during the summer months. We are looking forward the 2017 session with the terrific kids of Brooklyn. Your children can look forward to a summer of new games and projects that will keep them involved and looking forward to the next day. Our focus has been to offer a quality summer school-age program. The Recreation Coordinators will prepare a variety of exciting activities that allow your child’s mind and body to stay motivated while meeting friends and having fun! *Children from Oregon are welcome to join us but we do not provide transportation to and from the program (the only transportation we provide is for field trips)

Hello hello! I’m Melissa, this Summer’s coordinator! A little about me: I’m a student at UW-Madison where I also live. I study geology and work at the Geology Museum as well, where I work with dozens of children and teach them about our lovely planet. I love working with kids and I especially love working with kids in a fun environment (who doesn’t?). I am so excited to kick off Summer Rec with all the kiddos of Brooklyn. We are going to have a blast! “
