Rec Report: Party like it’s summer 2011

The sun has been teasing us and we hope it starts to hang out more often. We are over the rain. Ugh. Bleck. Enough already. We here in the Community Services department, love the rain, but we are really ready to get outside!

Thoughts of 90 degrees and bermudas dance in our heads. We’ve been thinking of summer 2011 for over seven months. When you were carving your pumpkins, we were planning field trips. When you were thinking about how thankful you were in November, we were scouting new camp offerings (skate camp and teen camp, to be exact).

Yes, we are obsessed with summertime. Why? For one thing, it beats rainy weather any day. Secondly, the days are longer and ice cream tastes better. And finally… no homework! Woo-hoo! This might be the best reason of all. Who doesn’t love not having homework? Uh, no one! Now, we know homework helps concrete the lessons taught during the school day and we’ll reluctantly get back to it come late August. But right now, with summer around the corner, this is what many a parent and child is on hanging for! It’s time to party like it is summer 2011!

The City of Davis Summer Recreation Schedule is on the streets and online at http://www.cityofdavis.org.

Open registration begins Tuesday, April 19. You can come stand in line if that is what floats your boat, or you can go online and register there. Please make sure you have created a household account through the Community Services Department in advance.

There are lots of programs still available. We’ve got swim lessons, summer camps, half-day programs, preschool options, gymnastics, etc. We are all that and a compostable bag of chips. We are also busy prepping for July’s park and recreation month.

Too much, you say? Nah, never! When your town has over 30 DIFFERENT youth camps and programs for summer, you need to a give a shout out. Not every city has the variety and dedicated staff. Camp Putah’s director is coming back for a record fifth year! The majority of the aquatic lifeguards are 3- or 4-year veterans and 90 percent of the summer camp leaders are returning and ready for some fun with your children. This means we are bringing consistency, know-how and excitement again this summer.

So, whether it’s teaching your six-year-old to let go of the side of the pool in morning or evening swim lessons, or having your teenager learn job skills in the many available teen programs, the city of Davis has something for your child.

Don’t hesitate… recreate!
