School Programs
Although kids look forward to summer with its unstructured leisure days, they are often unsettled or bored by the end of summer. There is a reinforcing feeling one gets with structure and accomplishment. With school now in session, kids are back on a school schedule and many are looking to fill their days with activities that give them a mental break from school work.

Parents with multiple kids know what is a good balance between school, structured activities and free time is not always the same for one child as it is for another. Some kids can manage school, be involved in an array of recreational activities, church groups, social organizations, etc., with little free time. In fact, the more you give them, the happier they are. Then, if you put another child on that same schedule, they would be overwhelmed and miserable.

The Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of activities, from the very intense program with a lot of commitment to succeed, to programs in which children will be successful just in participating. The Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department is a great place to let your children explore a variety of recreational interests until they find that special activity that makes them light up and want to make the commitment to excel in one particular area.

The Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department brochure will be in the mail in the next few weeks. Take a few minutes to review the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department recreational opportunities; we’re confident you’ll find something that catches your interest. Please register for classes early. Early registration makes for successful program preparation.
