The Summer Playground Program runs from 11:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday from mid June to mid August . Our goal is to provide supervised play and outdoor fun in a safe environment for children ages 5-11 in Superior. In order to set the foundation for this, we staff each program site with staff members who have been trained in CPR and First Aid. We also partner with the School District of Superior to provide free lunch and snack for program participants as well as any other children under the age of 18.
When sending your child to participate in our program, we suggest dressing them in layers as the temperature fluctuates frequently throughout the day and we are an outdoor program! Occasionally we will have to cancel program due to inclement weather, but we do our best to remain open as much as possible! In addition, sunscreen and water bottles are great things to have at the playground. Please make sure that if you child is participating in our trips to the YMCA that you also send them with the proper swim wear for the pool.
This year we are very excited about the field trip additions to our schedule. In addition to swimming at the YMCA twice a week, all parks will also take the following trips:
• Superior Public Library
• World of Wheels
• Landmark Lanes
• Adventure Zone
• EDGE Waterpark
• Superior Ice Arena
• SBA Basketball Skills Day
• Stand-up Paddleboarding
• Box Hockey in Billings Park
Make sure to mark your calendar with your park’s dates for trips and other fun activities on site!
We look forward to a great summer and are glad you are joining us!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Program has already started, can I still register my child?
Yes!! We welcome new registrations at any time! Each site has registration forms available for you to fill out and your child can start attending program immediately. You can also download and fill out the registration form from our website and bring it completed to the playground site your child will attend.
Can my child attend more than one site?
Yes, but if you would like your child to attend more than one site, that will need to be communicated at registration so both sites have necessary contact and emergency information. Only one registration fee will be required.
Is there any bussing from summer school to the playground program?
No, your child can join us any time after 11:30, but we do not transport any participants to program. They should walk, ride a bike, or be dropped off.
Can my child just come to the site to eat?
Absolutely. Our partnership with the Summer Food Service Program provides a free lunch and snack to anyone under the age of 18. Registration for the Summer Playground Program is not required to participate in lunch or snack.
Can my child attend only on field trip days?
Sure! We would love to have your child attend every day, but our ‘come and go’ structure allows you and your child to choose when they would like to attend. Registration fees are not prorated per day so the registration fee will remain the same, but participants are not required to attend every day.
Can I get a refund on my registration?
Sorry, but no refunds will be offered on registration fees.
What happens if it rains during program?
If we have to cancel due to inclement weather, participants will be sent home for the remainder of the day. If a group is on a field trip and indoors, they will continue with the trip as scheduled and will be sent home upon return to their playground site. If a field trip day is rained out, we will do our best to reschedule as soon as possible.
