Workreation 2023 will be offered June 5 through July 28, 2023.

About the Program

Workreation is a volunteer program for kids ages 7 to 17 years of age. The program offers children the opportunity to perform light cleaning and maintenance in the parks in exchange for a "Kids Can Pass".

Kids may volunteer 1 hour per day at either Columbian Park, Castaway Bay, or Vinton Pool. For each hour of work, the kids receive one Kids Can Pass. Each Kids Can Pass can be used for admission to any of the aquatic facilities or on the rides at Columbian Park.

Workreation gives kids the chance to contribute to the community, help keep the parks maintained, and learn teamwork and responsibility while enjoying some summer fun!
