(Washington, DC) – The Bowser administration and the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced registration for DPR 2019 Summer Programs will open on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, at 9 am. While DPR Summer Camp registration opened on February 25, 2019, expanded summer camp offerings through DPR's partnership with DC Public Schools are still available for online registration.

Through Mayor Bowser’s continued commitment to improving summer offerings for District residents, an additional $2.2 million was included in DPR’s FY19 Budget. These additional funds enable DPR to offer over 40 programs for seniors, and hundreds of programs and fun activities for toddlers, youths and adults.

"We are excited to provide our unique summer programs for all ages in all eight wards," said DPR Director Delano Hunter. "Most classes are provided at a nominal fee to residents, while many are actually free."

Starting May 1, residents will be able to register for programs including free fitness classes such as weight training, yoga and Zumba; youth baseball and soccer leagues; cutting-edge aquatic offerings including “HydroSpin” and “HydroPole” classes, as well as more traditional offerings for beginners such as “Learn to Swim” lessons. Enrichment programming includes pottery, ballet and more.
