DPR Winter Programming Registration Opens on Wednesday, November 1 and Thursday, November 2

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) are reminding residents that registration for DPR’s 2023 winter programming will begin on Wednesday, November 1 for aquatics programs and Thursday, November 2 for all other programs. Registration opens at noon on both days.
DPR programs offered this winter include: 

  • Aquatics programs including learn-to-swim, aquatic fitness, water polo, and lifeguard training. 
  • Team and individual sports: basketball, soccer, cheer, gymnastics, tennis, pickleball, and more. 
  • Out-of-school time programs for young people like Fun Day, Winter Wondercamp, Young Ladies on the Rise, and Supreme Teens.  
  • DPR Roving Leaders programs including Girls Who Code!, Little Chefs University, and Art Escape. 
  • Arts programs including ballet, piano, drawing & painting, and sewing. 
  • Senior-centered programs including cardio, aquatics, and overall fitness.

Families can sign their children up for Wee Winter Wondercamp, available for ages 3-5, and Winter Wondercamp, available for ages 6-13, during the upcoming winter break. And registration for additional DPR winter break programs will be announced in November.
Registration for winter programming is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and DPR will utilize a virtual “waiting room” on both program registration days in order to manage the high demand for programs. 
DPR Winter Program registration opens: 

  • Noon on Wednesday, November 1, for aquatics programs ONLY. 
  • Noon on Tuesday, November 2, for all other winter programs.
