Boise Parks and Recreation is hosting a variety of programs and volunteer opportunities in the coming months. Registration for summer activities starts today (April 19) for Boise residents and Wednesday, April 21 for non-residents. More information about summer programming and links to register are available online.
Our Parks and Recreation team is focused on small group sizes, physical distancing, and outdoor opportunities whenever possible with strong health and safety protocols in place. Check out the Summer Activity Guide for a full list of activities for kids, teens, and adults.
“We’re excited to be able to offer classes and camps to keep the community active and engaged this summer,” said Boise Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway. “Health and safety are top of mind in everything we do and after a long year of cancelations due to COVID-19, our team is looking forward to a safe and fun summer.”
New classes and camps offered this summer include roller derby and sailing, in addition to our popular art, dance, theater and Zoo Boise offerings. Plus, Boise Parks and Recreation’s successful Outdoor Preschool Program, started at the Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center, is expanding to west Boise this year with fall sessions at Boise Urban Garden School.
Boise Parks and Recreation’s Adaptive Recreation program for kids and adults provides a wide range of programs for people with disabilities. One-day AdVenture activities include bike rides, dinner and a movie and a foothills hike and dinner.
Meanwhile, the department’s volunteer program is also up and running again with outdoor opportunities to give back to the community. Events are updated regularly online and participants can choose from one-time activities or recurring volunteer programs.
