Recreation Classes for Teens and Adults

WCPR wants to provide you with an outlet for life-long learning.  It is never too late to teach yourself something new….let us guide you through that process.  These classes are programs that fall outside of either the Health & Wellness or Arts & Crafts categories.  Program options vary throughout the year and from facility to facility. We also offer a variety of other programs which may be found in other areas of the website.  Please see Health & Wellness, Music Classes and Art Classes for more programs.
