Special to the Tribune

The city’s recreation department is gearing up for another summer season full of adventure, learning, fun and great memories. The recreation staff is proud to host the annual “Spring into Summer” kick-off party on Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is free and designed to highlight summer programs, introduce recreation instructors and provide tours of the recreation and swim complex in a fun and festive environment.

South Tahoe Adventure Recreation (STAR) camp leaders will be on hand to meet prospective campers and parents as well as provide details about the many adventures campers will experience this summer such as hiking, biking, introduction to bike park riding, ice skating, archery, arts and crafts, fun with science, field trips and more. STAR camp provides an active, healthy and safe environment for youth ages kindergarten through fifth-grade to learn and play, and each themed week features an authentic Tahoe adventure.

Water safety instructors will be available to meet and greet parents and provide information on swim classes for all ages and abilities. There will also be pickle ball demonstrations provided by the Pickle Ball Club.

Choices for Children will be on hand to provide information on child care services available and funding for STAR campers who qualify!

Learn about the new recreation and swim complex slated for construction as soon as 2018!

The community is invited to the free “Spring into Summer” event at the city recreation and swim complex located at 1180 Rufus Allen Blvd. Come enjoy refreshments, music, games and fun to welcome summer and celebrate the benefits of recreation. For more information call 530-542-6056.

Lauren Thomaselli is the recreation superintendent for the city of South Lake Tahoe.
