Westlake Rec Center gears up for winter

As the Christmas holiday season is fast approaching so are the frigid, snow-filled days of winter. The Westlake Recreation Center is getting ready for the winter season. The fall programming is wrapping up another successful year, with tons of fun and learning experiences for people of all ages in the books. Decorations, winterizing, and programming are all in effect for this snowy season. The Rec Center just came out with the winter program book. This program book has a great amount of programs and special events for you to check out.

Check out the Rec after the doors close for The Ultimate After Hours Bash on Dec. 11. We close the Rec doors and stay open late for these special events. Participants will be able to have gym time, go swimming, play Wii and several other games while they enjoy pizza and drinks. This event is open to all Rec Center members and children who live or go to school in Westlake. Open to children in Grades 6–7.  

Enjoy the beginning of winter by joining us at the Rec Center for a reading of a story about winter. Winter Time is for kids ages 3–5. We will read a story, make a craft and enjoy a small snack. The winter fun takes place on Dec. 21.

Since school is out Dec. 21–23 and Dec. 28–30, the kids might need somewhere to go. Look no further. The Rec Center has a No School Day Camp for kids grades K–6. The kids will play games, go swimming, create art projects and do other fun activities in a supervised setting. The children will need to bring a lunch, towel and swimsuit for the day camp. 

Children always need to be watched. Who’s to watch after them? Babysitters, right? Well the Westlake Recreation Center has a class just for those Babysitters. On Dec. 21, the Rec Center has an American Red Cross Babysitter’s Course to offer to individuals ages 11 to 15. This course will provide information and skills necessary to provide safe and responsible care for children in the absence of parents or adult guardians.

There are many programs starting at the beginning of the new year. Don’t let these fun times and learning experiences pass you by. Please take a look at our program book that is filled with these good times. Program books can be found at the Westlake Recreation Center or on our website.
