It’s your summer to play your way!

During the summer, the PAC takes over The Pavilion – Bend’s newest and most exciting recreation center!

Each day is different as you get to choose what you want to do! There are always awesome choices whether you want to ”play hard or chill out.”

We’re talking climbing the rock wall, skateboarding and scootering, playing water games, floating the river, stand up paddle boarding, outdoor adventuring, getting into crazy, unique activities, creating art and playing your favorite games. It’s any way you want to spend your day, even just hanging with friends.

So that everyone has an awesome time at The Pavilion, PAC staff are big kids at heart who also know the importance that positive choices and safety play into having a good time.

Play Hard. Chill Out.
