(Washington, DC) – The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced that spaces are available on Friday, November 17, 2017 for the DPR Fun Day happening December 1, 2017.

When DC Public Schools (DCPS) are closed for staff development on December 1, the agency will offer DPR Fun Day, a free, single-day program offering fun and enriching activities (such as sports and athletics, arts and crafts, and more) for children between the ages 6 and 12 years old. DPR strives to meet the needs of District families when DCPS has full day closures for staff development.

This event is free, however online registration is required. In person and over the phone registration is not available for this program. DPR Fun Day is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and before/after care is not offered. Meals are not provided, so please send lunch and a snack on December 1.

Spaces fill on a first-come, first-serve basis and enrollment at each site is subject to availability. Parents are encouraged to create an online account for all members of their family in DPR's registration system.
