REC School Year Program: Table Bowling (LOP), Spook Ball and Elephant Ball (MHP)

After School REC Park Pass and After School REC with Extended Care

Live Oak Park (LOP) Activity: Table Bowling
Two tables are placed parallel from each other. Three cones are placed at the end of each table (similar to bowling pins). Players take turns rolling a ball down the table to knock the cones down. The player with the most cones knocked over is the winner!

Manhattan Heights Park (MHP) Activity: Spook Ball and Elephant Ball
Spook Ball begins when all the players make a circle about arms length away from each other and stand with their hands behind their backs. The group leader will stand in the middle of the circle and become the "spooker". The spooker will try to get the other players out in one of two ways:

  • Pretending to tag a player with the ball and make them flinch
  • Actually tagging the player with the ball

If a player does not flinch when the spooker pretends to tag them with the ball they will still be in the game. If the spooker throws the ball, the player must catch the ball and not drop it in order to stay in the game. The last player in the circle will become the new spooker.

Elephant Ball begins when each player is standing side by side in a circle. Players then use their hands to hit the ball across the circle. The objective is to get the ball through another person's legs. If the ball passes through the legs of a player that player is out. The game is over when there is only one person left.


The REC Program is a user-pay program open to children ages 6 to 12 or children in grades 1st through 5th. Children will be participating in self-directed and organized recreational activities designed to positively impact social connections, human development, and lifelong learning. All activities are supervised by trained CPR certified recreation leaders. REC Program ratio: 1 leader per 13 children.
