We deliver active and fun recreation games, nutrition education, and a healthy snack. Our Mobile Recreation Vans are large cargo vehicles outfitted with balls, jump ropes, bases, and other supplies for field games, fitness, and fun art projects for kids. Our two vans travel to different predesignated elementary schools during the school year and to different parks and apartment complexes around Boise during the summer months.

BACKGROUND

The Mobile Recreation Unit was launched in February 2008 to address programming deficiencies identified by the Mayor's Council on Children and Youth. Accessibility, both in terms of location and cost, was identified as a major obstacle facing families looking for safe, quality after-school programming for their children. The Mobile Recreation Unit is intended to help alleviate the accessibility issue and provide safe, supervised activities near to home. This Institution is an Equal Opportunity Provider.
