In 2018, the City of Canton Recreation Board made some new and exciting changes to our Summer Recreation Program.
There are many benefits to summer recreation including, but not limited to, increasing activity, building self-esteem, socializing with others, and learning new skills. These are just some of the reasons the Canton Recreation Board believes it is important to make changes to the 2018 summer program. Based on a survey of community members, we are implementing the following changes to the Summer Day Recreation Program:
Research shows that programs held during out-of-school hours give youth a safe, supervised place to spend time, along with the opportunity to learn new skills, develop their interests and spend meaningful time with peers and adults. In addition, youth who attend these programs have demonstrated improved academic achievement and social skills. We encourage you to sign up your kids for this year’s program so that we can continue to make enhancements to the program and grow the program year after year.
