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.

Included in the new fee structure, the REC Program offers after school pick up from four local elementary schools: Meadows Elementary, Pennekamp Elementary, Pacific Elementary, and Grand View Elementary. REC Program staff will meet the children at each school and walk them to their home park. Students from Meadows and Pennekamp will walk to Manhattan Heights Park and students form Pacific and Grand View will walk to Live Oak Park. REC Program Staff will depart from the schools in two groups (grades 1st through 3rd/ grades 4th through 5th). Each group will begin walking 10 minutes after dismissal time.

REC Program (7:15 AM to 6:00 PM) for Manhattan Beach Unified School District (MBUSD) in-service days, as well as school year vacation camps (Fall, Winter, Ski Week and Spring) are also included in the new fee structure, if registered in the applicable month. If your child is registered during a month that includes a camp, he or she will be automatically enrolled at no extra charge.
