Spring/Summer Parks & Recreation Programs

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - As the weather finally starts to warm up, the City of Spokane Valley Parks & Recreation Department has announced its spring and summer programs.

Several new programs will debut in the spring, including "Babysitter's Training."  This class is for babysitters eleven to fifteen years of age and will teach students safety and emergency training skills taught by the American Red Cross.  Students will also understand how to handle bedtime issues and prepare meals or snacks.  The one-day class is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and costs just $57.

Also new is the "Infant Massage" class, where parents will learn techniques to help in the healthy development of their babies' brains and bodies.  The cost is $18 per session.

This summer will bring back the popular "Summer Day Camp" and "KinderCamp."  Both programs offer field trips, t-shirts for campers and other fun daily activities.

The Parks and Recreation Department will also be offering "Outdoor Movies in the Park."  Selected by a community survey are "The Goonies" (Warner Bros.) and "Bee Movie" (DreamWorks), to be shown at Mirabeau Point Park.  Both are free to the public.  Dates and times can be found by looking in the recreation program brochure or by visiting the Spokane Valley website.

Kids can also look forward to "Sport Camp," where the basics of soccer, tee-ball and basketball are taught, or "Cheer Dance" class, where beginners learn steps to cheerleading and dancing.

For more information or to register contact the City of Spokane Valley Parks and Recreation Department by phone at 688-0300 or email parksandrec@spokanevalley.org.
