Sports 'n Shorts

A fun mix of learning and outdoor activities for ages 5-12. Certified staff will lead children in sports, arts and crafts, games, reading activities and special programs each day. This summer all sites still qualify for free lunch!

Lunch will also be offered to all children 17 and younger every day the program is in session.  Visit the park closest to you when the program begins to find out when lunch is served.

This is a free program that is supported and paid for by your city, township or village!

Space is limited so please pre-register here: Sports 'n Shorts Registration
