Reel in the Catch of the Day!
Kids can try to reel in the BIG one at the Little Island Fishing Pier in our Fish On program. We will provide all the equipment, and even bait your child's hook. This session is designed for kids who would like to see what the sport is all about as we will give a brief intro on the equipment and casting lessons. We also welcome those who are experienced and just want to come out and enjoy an evening of fishing. A parent must attend with the registered participant (age 5-14). The program costs $7 and covers access to the pier. Three sessions are offered:
#95038 | Thursday, September 9 | 6-8 pm
#95039 | Thursday, September 16 | 6-8 pm
#95040 | Thursday, September 23 | 6-8 pm
Register Now for 2010/2011 School Year Programs!
It seems like school just let out, but now is the time to plan for your child's before and after school accommodations for the coming school year. We're dedicated to providing convenient, high-quality and affordable Out-of-School Time Programs
with well-supervised and enjoyable activities to ensure your child's positive development.
Programs Offered at Schools
We conduct before school programs at many elementary and middle schools. We also operate after school programs at every elementary school in Virginia Beach! These programs emphasize the importance of physical activity, and combine high energy games with play time. Events such as talent shows, special guests and tournaments help to make these programs extra special. And, when you register your child for these programs, they receive a recreation center membership!
Programs Offered at Recreation Centers
Just like the programs we conduct at the schools, the recreation center after school programs are high-energy. But mix in the recreation center amenities like the swimming pools, extra large gyms, SportWalls and game rooms, and you know your child will have a blast! Of course, a recreation center membership comes with registration.
Registration continues as space is available...
