It is time for our Summer Recreation Program!! What is summer rec? It is a great summer camp program  that runs for two weeks during the summer from 9 am to noon. There are activities each week that the kids can choose from…anything from soccer, outdoor games, basketball, arts and crafts, writing and illustrating their own book, science fun, etc.  They will participate in three activities per week.

The dates for this year’s Summer Rec. are June 11 -14  and  June 18 -21.  Registrations are due by May 4, 2018.  There is a fee of $25.00 per week. If you have a family of three or more children attending, the cost is reduced.  Ontario  students, or any children that live in Ontario,  that have completed Kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to attend Summer Rec.  It is held at the Ontario Middle School.  

Additionally, Swim Lessons will  be offered immediately following our Summer Rec. program. The dates are for eight days,  June 11 -14 and June 18- 21.  The first session is held from 12:15 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.   The second session is from 1:15 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.   The cost is $40 per child.   There are limited spots available, so it is a first come, first serve basis.
