There are three words that every parent dreads hearing from their kid over the summer: “I’m so bored.” It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard, right?

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (THPRD) in Beaverton knows your frustration, which is why they’re offering nearly every family-friendly activity under the sun. We’re talking hundreds of cool camps and classes at recreation centers and pools all over a 50-square-mile radius. Registration begins on Apr. 22, but for a taste of what will be offered for the summer session, keep reading.

  • There’s literally something for every kid in your crew to sign up for. But if you’re looking for something a little different try archery, tennis lessons, or even intro. to ballet. THPRD offers everything for every age, level, ability and interest.
  • Cool off poolside, but not just at any old watering hole. Some of THPRD’s  indoor pools come with climbing walls, accessible equipment, and warmer temps (perfect for babies), and one of the outdoor pools even boasts a waterslide.
  • You can double dip by keeping kiddo busy and indulging in a little me-time at the same time. Love Zumba? Yoga? Ever tried Tai Chi? If you purchase a deluxe fitness pass for any of these classes you’ll get 2 hours of free childcare to use while you work out.

Summertime cabin fever is a thing (What? You didn’t know?), but with all that THPRD has to offer you don’t have to worry about your kids catching it.
