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.

New Limited Capacity for 2018:

Pre-registration Highly Encouraged / Daily and Half-Day Passes Available Monday, June 4
This spring, there has been a very significant increase in The PAC passes sold during preseason. Due to this increase and the need to ensure a safe, enjoyable visit for all PAC participants, a limit has been placed on PAC summer, 10-visit, daily and half-day passes to be sold. For day-of attendance, only pass-holding PAC participants will be honored. Walk-ins without a pass will no longer be available. We apologize for this change, but we need to be able to properly plan your child’s safety and supervision.

SUMMER PASSES / 10-VISIT PASSES: Summer and 10-visit passes will be honored any day. There is no need to pre-register for a specific day. On May 30, there are currently some summer passes available; 10-visit passes are at limit and a wait list in place. Pass purchase or joining a wait list now is encouraged.

DAILY / HALF-DAY PASSES: For daily and half-day passes, there are a limited number available each day. Daily passes are limited to 20 registrations. Half-day passes have a maximum of 10 registrations for AM and 10 registrations for PM. Daily/half-day registration for the entire summer opens Monday, June 4. Registration at opening is highly encouraged. There will not be a waiting list for daily/half-day passes and there will not be any walk-ins available.
