The Community Services summer brochure will arrive in mailboxes this weekend, and registration for summer classes opens Friday, April 15.

Summer brings a variety of swimming classes, as well as camps for a range of ages. Young children (ages 3 – 5) can visit the Wild, Wild West or go on Super Safari, while KidVentures has enrichment and recreation opportunities for kids entering grades 1 – 4 and tweens (grades 5 – 7).

Youth can get outside with baseball, softball, tennis or Ultimate Frisbee Camp, or learn to ride and care for horses. Other highlights:

  • Adventure Mania is back with a new Stillwater Segway Tour, plus rafting and outdoor rock climbing.
  • Youth ages 8 and older can “learn to fly” with a new Balancing Buddies class.
  • Art and science classes for youth include drawing, painting, clay camps, theater workshops, beading, baking, chess, rocketry, Mad Science Forensic Lab, and more.
  • The Youth Enrichment League has expanded fencing classes for adults.

Adults can check out new recreation, health, organization and cooking classes. For example, learn to:

  • live with less, de-clutter and get organized.
  • navigate finances as a couple.
  • cook to apply “clean eating” principals.
  • grow, harvest and prepare fresh herbs.

Unique community events are also published in the brochure. Browse to read more about:
