RAP! The Recreation After-School ProgramParks & Recreation


RAP!: Recreation Afterschool Program

The Parks and Recreation Department’s popular, fee-based afterschool program, RAP!, provides homework assistance, recreation activities, sports, crafts, and special programs to 1st–6th graders at Adams, Monroe, Roosevelt, and Washington Elementary Schools.

RAP! begins immediately following the regular school day and operates until 5:30pm, keeping your child active and engaged in healthy, enriching activities while you finish your workday.

Our goal is to provide a supervised, fun program where children can make new friends and hang out with current friends in a relaxed afterschool environment. RAP! is intended to offer you convenience, affordability, and safety, along with the knowledge that your child is working on homework and being cared for by highly-trained program staff. Each RAP! site has between 3-6 program leaders and one site director with a staff to student ratio of 1:20.
