BROWARD COUNTY, FL – Are you a parent who annually wonders what to do with the kids during their summer break from school? If so, we have an answer: Enroll them in the free Summer Recreation Program at one of six participating neighborhood parks: Boulevard Gardens Community Center, Franklin Park, Lafayette Hart Park, Reverend Samuel Delevoe Park, Roosevelt Gardens Park, and Sunview Park, all located in the Broward Municipal Services District. The program is available on weekdays from June 18th through August 10th, 9AM to 5PM, and registration is now open (space is limited).

As usual, there will be no program on July 4th. Early dropoff is available from 8 to 9AM, and late pickup from 5 to 6PM. Age groups vary, with Franklin, Lafayette Hart, Delevoe, and Roosevelt Gardens accepting ages 6 to 17. The Boulevard Gardens program is for ages 6 to 10, and at Sunview participants must be between 13 and 17. All campers will receive free lunches and snacks for the first seven weeks of the program.

Participants will experience a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, including arts and crafts, a nutrition program, sports, special events, life skills, and guest speakers. Weekly field trips, which entail a minimal charge, are optional; field trip participants must also purchase a $5 T-shirt that must be worn on all outings. Possible field trip destinations include area movie theaters and aquatics facilities such as Castaway Island at T.Y. (Topeekeegee Yugnee) Park.

Special-event days scheduled include the long-running Broward Star Time talent showcase, on July 26th, and the traditional End-of-Summer Celebration, on August 10th. The Third Annual Teen League will be on a date to be announced later.

All participants between the ages of 6 and 10 will also have access to two weeks of free water-safety instruction through the SWIM Central program. Space is limited, however.
