KidsCare

KidsCare (formerly known as Sitting Service)

Drop the kids off at KidsCare so you can enjoy your workout, class or activity knowing they are being supervised in a fun and enriching environment.  Kids will have the chance to participate in new specialized activities such as Fitness Fun, Art and Music Activities along with Story Time.  New games and toys encourage motor skill development and interaction with our KidsCare Attendants.  Activity Schedules will be posted soon.

The service is available to parents/legal guardians only, who are utilizing the recreation facilities and amenities as a pass holder or have paid general admission.  Due to limited participation numbers established by state regulations, we offer this program to our patrons as a limited time service, available on a first come, first served basis.
