Rec-PAC Summer Program


Last summer, over 4,000 kids played their way through weeks of healthy fun at Rec-PAC sites across the county.
Here's a sampling of the good things parents had to say about their children's experiences.

  • The Rec-PAC program is well run and well organized. I loved all the creativity and that they encouraged my kids to use their imaginations.
  • My daughter had a great time playing with her friends and meeting new ones. Rec-PAC is a great place for kids to be kids.
  • I loved that my son was able to exercise, make new friends and have fun in the sun.
  • The weekly themes were great and the daily activities were fun for all the kids. Rec-PAC rocks!
  • My kids looked forward to the special events each week. The staff were very creative and made sure my kids had fun.
  • My son made a lot of new friends. He came home very happy at the end of each day and looked forward to going back to play games with his new buddies.
  • I love that my child had a blast at Rec-PAC. She did fun, safe and wonderful activities every day. She was excited to go everyday.
  • The staff are very professional, well mannered and dedicated to their work. They love the kids and were very polite. I couldn't have asked for better role models for my kids to be around.
