After School Programs & Camps
We encourage youth to grow into responsible adults by participating in positive activities after school and during the summer months. Our youth activities at the Rodarte Community Center are offered free or at low cost, contact us for more information!
Recreational classes, activities and events: View the Recreation Connection magazine for a full list of programs.
Our After School Program offers activities for kids while they are on vacation from school too! Our Fun in the Snow program is usually offered during Christmas break and Fun in the Spring program is typically offered during spring break. Both programs offer activities for kids from 8am-5pm.
Summer camps are hosted each year June-August. Looking for something fun for the kids to do over this summer? We have plenty of options in our Summer Camps.
Fun in the Sun (FITS) is a great opportunity for area youth to enjoy themed activities each week throughout the summer. See what we are offering in 2018, download the flyer. Registration begins March 5-30 for those in need of financial assistance (Youth Assistance application and Free & Reduced Lunch Program qualification letter required at the time of registration). General registration is April 16-March 18.
Before Fun in the Sun offers kids an option to come to the center early, have breakfast and lunch and engage in some fun morning activities before the FITS program starts.
Have fun learning the basic techniques of boxing. We offer both a youth recreational program, where you learn the basics of the sport, and a youth competitive program, where you learn the basic skills and compete.
