Placeholder Image



The Great Bend Recreation Commission is now accepting enrollment for the fall programs.

Program Coordinator Garet Fitzpatrick said programs are offered for all ages.

Afterschool activities will be offered at the Recreation Center, Activity Center, Park, Lincoln, Jefferson and Eisenhower schools. Enrichment and recreation programs are available for children ages 5 to 12 years. These programs include arts and crafts, cartooning, ceramics, cooking classes and holiday mini classes.

Preschool programs for children 2 to 5 years old will be held at the Recreation Center, 1214 Stone St., and the Activity Center, 2715 18th St., throughout the day. Programs include family cooking classes, preschool art classes, Discovering Music, and Fun, Wiggles & Giggles, and some one-time holiday theme based classes.

Mini classes for family activities will meet on Saturday mornings.

Fitzpatrick said adult programs are scheduled in the evening because many people find that more convenient. Classes include ceramics, painting, line dancing, yoga, Zumba and other aerobic classes, crochet and a number of one-time seasonal craft projects.

"Get registered today because a lot of the programs will begin the week of Oct. 3," Fitzpatrick said. " For more information or to register for these programs contact the Recreation Commission office at 793-3755 ext. 2, stop by the office located at 1214 Stone Street, or e-mail"
