Times: The program is offered from 1-4:30 p.m. Children are expected to be picked up from the program between 4:30-5 p.m.

Location: The program is offered through the Department of Kinesiology in the Forker Building. Open areas surrounding the Forker Building are also utilized for outdoor sports and activities.

Fees: The cost is $75 per week of participation. The weeks of June 17 and July 1 will have a reduced rate due to the shortened days of participation.

Program Design

Sports and physical activities are instructed by physical education majors, elementary education majors, and graduate students in the Department of Kinesiology. Children in grades K-6 participate in a range of activities such as: team sports, gymnastics, dance, physical fitness, wellness activities, etc. Children entering or finishing kindergarten may join this program and children finishing sixth grade may participate in this program.

As of 2024, the program does not include swimming lessons due to the decommissioning of the Forker Pool. The reduced cost of the program reflects this change.
