Rivers West District Mobile Playground Program 2018
Another summer of the Mobile Playground Program has come and gone. This is one of our most popular programs that Rivers West District provides to our members. This program focuses on children 5 to 11 with a mandate to bring a day of crafts, sports, songs and play to children in their own community during the summer months. Rivers West District hires 4 Mobile Playground Coordinators to plan and organize the community visits and then to travel to those communities in July and August. Any member community is eligible to book 1 day in July and 1 day in August.
23 different member communities participated in the program with a total of 474 of their children attending the 36 community visitations made by our coordinators which featured the following themes: Disney, Under the Sea, Dinosaur, Outer Space, Olympic and Animals. Our coordinators traveled a total of 9,499 kilometres reaching every area of our vast District.
