Recreation staff will be on site at the Central Park School to retrieve K-5th graders and whisk them off to the Community Recreation Center (CRC) for an afternoon of activity. The CRC offers a wide variety of enrichment classes including music, sports, martial arts, theatre, creative arts, and special interest. Get registered for the desired classes, and then register for Club Central on the days your class meets at the CRC. We will take care of the rest! Staff will get clubbers to their classes on time and supervise in between, offering more excitement with crafts, recreation games, homework time, snack, and much more! Join the fun today! Club Central is open to students from other schools, however, drop off is required.
