A youth rec leader playing with kids at The Pavilion in the summer.

Wahoo! The PAC is back at The Pavilion!

Each day is different and 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 skateboarding and scootering, playing water games, stand-up paddle boarding, outdoor adventuring, trying 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.

M – F:         6/20 – 8/26 (No program 7/4)
For 8/29 – 9/2 for ages 6 – 8, see Endless Summer Camp on page 28.

The PAC provides youth the opportunity to choose which adventure fits them best on any given day. By giving multiple choices from art to outdoor adventures, we hope to develop a sense of wonder, curiosity and exploration

Ages: 8 – 10: At The PAC, you decide how to spend your day! Choose between your favorite activities like group games and cool art projects plus opportunities to try new things and go on off-site adventures.

Ages: 10 – 12: Banish boring – Don’t just hang out at home, join the PAC! Come spend your day with friends doing your favorite activities! You’ll also get a chance to plan your own off-site special adventures. Bonus! Participants 12 and older are able to check themselves in and out of The PAC (with parent pre-approval) and go off-site as needed.

NOTE: Special events offered at The PAC may feature an additional fee.

PAC Adventures

The PAC offers daily morning and afternoon local field trips and weekly all-day getaways to awesome places around Central Oregon. Off-site trips are designated by ages, 8 – 10 and 10 – 12. (Yep! 10 year-olds choose between the two trips. Lucky!)

Morning field trips will include such fun as Capture the Flag or nature adventures at Shevlin Park, visiting the library and games at local parks.

Afternoons will include cooling off with paddle boarding or visiting Juniper Swim and Fitness Center for recreation swim.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the PAC features all-day get-a-ways with such Central Oregon adventures as swimming and picnicking at a variety of Cascade Lakes or outdoor adventures like biking, caving and fishing.
