Register for the After School Program


Jump to:



We offer after school programs at various locations throughout the County. You can register your child for the traditional after school program or the adaptive recreation program for kids with special needs.

Due to COVID-19, Parks & Recreation has made changes to its after-school program to ensure the health and safety of its kids and staff, including reducing the number of spots available and only allowing grades K through 5th.

After-School Program changes include the following:

  • Parks staff will wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible. After-school participants will be encouraged to follow the same protocol.
  • Daily health/temperature checks will be performed on each participant and each staff member.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available at each location, and intensive cleaning protocols will be in place.
