New year, new programs, new fun at Westlake Rec

The new year brings several new programs to pique your interest at the Westlake Recreation Center. We have new programs for people of all ages. January is almost over, which means several of our programs have already begun, but this also means we have many more that are starting just around the corner. Make sure to check out the program book for more upcoming programs, but for now here are some programs that you might be interested in:

On January 31, we will host our first ever members-only Grand Day at the Rec at 1:00 p.m. Bring your grandchild or grandparent to the recreation center for an afternoon of fun in the pool, make a craft, play in the gym and enjoy a snack. Don’t miss out on this grand time. 

Calling all dads and their daughters! On February 5 at 6:30 p.m., please join us for our annual Father/Daughter Valentine’s Day Dance. Have the opportunity to dance the night away with your little princess. Snack and punch will be provided. Each couple will receive a photo memento of the evening. Event is for children ages 3-10. Deadline to register is February 1.

If science interests your 4–6 year old, we have a class for them. Young scientists will explore the world around us in a caring, curious and creative setting with Mrs. K. Sign up for Science with Mrs. K and learn about animals and their houses starting Feb 5.   

Another new program this winter is the Almost Sleepover for girls ages 5–10. Send the girls up to the Westlake Recreation Center with their pajamas and sleeping bags as we will enjoy all the fun activities of an actual sleepover. The girls will polish their nails, do their hair and watch a movie with popcorn. The fun will begin Jan. 29 at 6:00 p.m.

DEN Boot Camp is a fun, high-energy class for 10–14 year olds that includes intervals of cardio moves and strength training. Class will be held on Wednesdays, Feb. 3 – 24 at 6:30 p.m.
