Polk City Summer Recreation 2018

Join us this summer for fun in the sun at Polk City Summer Recreation! Sprint has finally arrived and we are getting excited for another fun filled summer with your child. Along with the seasoned activities, such as, swimming, bowling, and hiking, we will again be looking to add new activities that will be both socially interactive and team oriented. All the kids will have an opportunity to work together in many different team oriented activities, such as Tug of War and Capture The Flag.

Summer Recreation is for children who have completed Kindergarten- through 6th grade. (At the end 2017-2018 school year.) 

Your child will not be registered until all forms are completed and the registration fees have been paid. You may drop your registration off inside City Hall, in the drop box outside, or mail it to:   Polk City Summer Recreation, City of Polk City, P.O. Box 426, Polk City, IA 50226.

Please make checks payable to the City of Polk City.

Registration will also be accepted at Open Swim Lesson Sign ups.

We at Polk City Summer Recreation are excited to have your child attend this summer!  It will be a great time for all.
