School is out and Artesia’s youngsters have been set loose. The City of Artesia Recreation Department is offering a smorgasbord of summer activities and programs as solutions for parents looking to funnel their children’s energy in a positive and productive direction.
The 2010 City of Artesia Summer Recreation Program themed “Blast from the Past” will begin June 7 and run through July 30, and will cater to children 6 years of age and older. Sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday.
Artesia Recreation Director Luis Reyes said in addition to planned activities, supervision will be provided for self-directed, unstructured play from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
A registration fee of $35 includes a T-shirt, entrance to a dance and pool party and prizes. Activities will include games, arts and crafts, board games, gym activities and exploring the past. To register, visit the Artesia Community Center.
