Summerlea Park play program starts July 13

The Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL) is putting on a drop-in play program this summer in our park. The program starts July 13th and will run until the end of August.

Program Location: The program will be held in Summerlea Park, in the playground/field area. 

Program Hours: Monday-Thursday, 1:30 – 3:30 pm.  There will be one leader on site with a maximum of 25 participants.

Who can participate: The target audience is children ages 8-12 years old.

How it works: Because the site will be run as a drop in, children are free to come and go as they please. They will be asked to check in with the leader as they come and go for ratio purposes.

The leader will collect name and emergency contact information from the children as they drop. This is necessary in case there is an emergency or a health alert that needs to be passed on to parents/guardians.

Leaders will also do a short health screening with participants before the program begins to ensure everyone’s safety. 

Washroom use: Children will be asked to return home to use the washroom during the program. 

If you have any questions about the program, send us an email to info@summerlea.org
