Summer Playground Program


Welcome to the Summer Playground Program! 

PROGRAM DATES FOR 2021 WILL BE JUNE 14 - AUGUST 20. (11:30 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.)  

The Summer Playground Program runs from 11:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday from mid June to mid August. Our goal is to provide supervised play and outdoor fun in a safe environment for children ages 5-11 in Superior.  In order to set the foundation for this, we staff each program site with staff members who have been trained in CPR and First Aid.  We also partner with the School District of Superior to provide free lunch and snack for program participants as well as any other children under the age of 18. 

When sending your child to participate in our program, we suggest dressing them in layers as the temperature fluctuates frequently throughout the day and we are an outdoor program!  Occasionally we will have to cancel program due to inclement weather, but we do our best to remain open as much as possible!  In addition, sunscreen and water bottles are great things to have at the playground.  Please make sure that if your child is participating in our trips to the YMCA that you also send them with the proper swim wear for the pool.

FIELD TRIPS 


The 2021 Summer Playground Program will primarily focus on bringing activities and conducting programming in the parks.  Due to continued challenges and uncertainty during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will be offering limited field trips during the 2021 season.  Participants will have an opportunity to swim at the YMCA once a week and a one-time visit to the Stand Up Paddle Boarding later this summer.

We look forward to a great summer and are glad you are joining us!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



Program has already started, can I still register my child?

Yes!! We welcome new registrations at any time!  Each site has registration forms available for you to fill out and your child can start attending program immediately.  You can also download and fill out the registration form from our website, complete it and bring it to the playground site your child will attend.    

Can my child attend more than one site?

Yes, but if you would like your child to attend more than one site, that will need to be communicated at registration so both sites have necessary contact and emergency information.  

Is there any busing from summer school to the playground program?

No, your child can join us any time after 11:30, but we do not transport any participants to program.  They should walk, ride a bike, or be dropped off.

Can my child just come to the site to eat?

Absolutely. Our partnership with the Summer Food Service Program provides a free lunch and snack to anyone under the age of 18. Registration for the Summer Playground Program is not required to participate in lunch or snack.

What happens if it rains during program?

If we have to cancel due to inclement weather, participants will be sent home for the remainder of the day. Updates on the program will also be on our recorded hotline at (715) 395-7299.
