Summer recreation 2017

The Orange City Summer Youth Recreation Program offers exciting and enriching programs for children starting at 3 years of age, to programs offered for adults. Our goal is to provide positive and exciting social opportunities through recreation and leisure programming. The programs are offered at various sites throughout Orange City, and the participants of these activities can be assured they will receive the following benefits:

  • A safe haven to socialize and recreate with their peers.
  • A time set aside to teach life long lasting activities.
  • Team building and collaboration.
  • Programming that incorporates character development in confidence, integrity, leadership and teamwork.
  • Great Arts and Crafts programming offered daily.
