Mid-Zone After School Program:
We have the perfect program for children in 5th - 8th grade students to continue their day with a supervised program highlighting a safe and fun environment. The program is held directly after school until 6:00pm. Healthy snacks, physical activity, arts/crafts, quiet time and other organized leisure activities are provided. Transportation can be set up through the Fairport Transportation Office.
Focus Fridays and Saturday Activity Nights:
The Teen Center will be open on select Friday and Saturday evenings for teens to socialize. Teens will still have access to video games, board games, table tennis, movies, crafts and parties. New to this season will be dinners, sports and teen outings. Teen outings may consist of events such as Laser Quest, sporting events (i.e. Amerks, Nighthawks, Razorsharks), Fairport Bowling, movies at the Cinema. Registration for each event can be purchased individually or all at once for a one time all-inclusive fee. Check out page 26 of the winter brochure to see what is offered this season.
Caring Perin-'teens' Community Service:
The Teen Center and Perinton Community Center are always looking for teens interested in community service hours. We have designed a program for teens looking for a community service opportunity with Perinton Recreation and Parks. Here is your opportunity to give back to your community volunteering in areas of need, working with youth and senior populations, area parks, and community facilities.
