School Year Programs


We offer a wide selection of school year programs for children Kindergarten through 5th grades. Programs are licensed through the State of Colorado, and are available for registration on-line or at the Parks & Recreation Office.

  • Education Exploration:  This is a new full day program that supplements the Steamboat Springs School District's Phase 3 schedule (every-other-day schooling) for Soda Creek and Strawberry Park Elementary Schools. This program will be available Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Kids will spend a portion of the day working on online schoolwork and assignments, as well as participate in free play time, outdoor play, arts & crafts, and other developmentally appropriate activities. During  schoolwork time, staff will be available to answer questions, but due to the number of children in the program, we are unable to work with children one-on-one for extended periods of time. 
  • School Days Off:  This program is offered on non-City Holidays when school isn’t in session, including Blues Break, Spring Break, Parent/Teacher Conferences, and Teacher Work Days. The program is offered from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and the cost includes all transportation, activity fees, supervision and supplies.
  • Therapeutic Recreation:  Our programs are inclusive for all children. We work closely with the Yampa Valley Autism Program to help provide 1:1 aides for children who qualify for their services, and provide aides otherwise for children who don’t.  T-Rec Paperwork can be found in the Document Center. Please contact Megan Troiani for all additional information regarding children who need special accommodations.

All participants are required to have on file a current Recreation Family Record and current Immunization Records prior to attending programs.

All required paperwork, handbooks, calendars, and newsletters can be found in our Document Center.
