There will be special activities throughout the school year with field trips, special guests offering fun projects and treats, and children are also able to experience free tennis lessons through a grant provided by NCCAP and the USTA. Full Time, Part Time, and Drop In options are available! To lock in a spot for your child at an Afterschool Program, just complete a registration form and make your payment for their first month at the Burlington Recreation & Parks!
