Drop-in Summer Recreation Program (ages 5 - 13 years)
Goodyear Summer Recreation Program is a supervised, drop-in program designed for youth who will be enrolling in first through eighth grade for the upcoming 2018/2019 school year. In order to be eligible for this program, youth must have completed a full year of kindergarten.
Trained and supervised staff will provide a variety of fun, educational programs including indoor/outdoor activities, on-site clubs, games, mini tournaments, arts & crafts, movie days, field trips, guest instructors, speakers, and more. Each week will have a specific theme to coordinate with the special presentations, games and activities provided. Themes for 2018 include Wild West Week, Outer Space Week, Super Hero Week, Carnival Week, Star Spangled 4th Week, Safari Week, and Rock Star Week.
Junior Leader Program
The summer recreation program is offering an amazing opportunity for youth ages 14 - 15 who want to gain valuable skills and job experience as a Junior Leader for the program. Junior Leaders will volunteer for the 7-week or 6-week program (depending on the site) and learn valuable skills such as organization, teamwork, group activity facilitation, and leadership skills. This program is FREE, but limited to an application and interview process. In order to be considered for the program, applicants must fill out an application and be available to work throughout the summer.
