SUMFUN is set to open Monday, June 1st, 2020. Registration forms are available for download on this site or at the Parks and Recreation office. At this time, our allowable capacity is not known, but we anticipate that it will be less than has been standard in previous years.

Registration for new participants will be available at the Parks and Recreation office from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday (5/29) and beginning Monday morning (6/1) at 7:00 a.m.
