Mesa summer programs still have openings

        School is out and summer is here; the City of Mesa’s Parks and Recreation Department has plenty of youth programs to help avoid those summer doldrums.
        Openings are still available in several popular summer activities, including Boredom Busters and Summer Adventure programs. Both are aimed at children entering first through sixth grades and offer a variety of educational and recreational opportunities including games, crafts, movies, speakers, field trips and daily swimming:
        Boredom Busters                                Summer Adventure
        Monday-Thursday                                Monday-Friday
        1:00 PM-5:30 PM                                7:00 AM-6:00 PM
 Children are broken into age appropriate groups and the camps are held at various locations in the city.
        There are also openings in Kidz Zone, a summer drop-in recreation program at the Red Mountain Multigenerational Center designed for kids 6-13.  Throughout the day, kids will participate in arts and crafts, cooking activities, climbing the rock wall and more.  Teen Summer Adventures program is available for teens entering seventh through ninth grades, takes place each Friday, and includes trips to such local attractions such as IMAX theatre, Skateland, Sunsplash and others.
        The City’s indoor and outdoor soccer camps, which run from June 25- July 19, still have openings. There are three camps open for boys and girls in grades one through 12, which will help young athletes develop fundamental skills, learn drills and understand game rules.
        A weight training camp will also be held the week of June 25th, and is designed for seventh through ninth graders interested in learning age-appropriate techniques for weight training.
        Interested being part of a team? The dive, water polo, synchronized swim and recreational swim teams are still accepting applications for their respective squads.  Swim lessons are also available through out the summer.
        All Parks and Recreation programs are listed in the Time Out publication, distributed seasonally.  For more information on these programs and others available, please visit, or call 480-644-5300.
