County of Maui News Release
The County of Maui Dept. of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced registration dates for the 2015 Summer Play and Learn Sessions (PALS) program.
Children should be registered in the district in which they will be attending PALS, and payments must be made on registration day. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis; if all the available spaces for a site have been filled before the allotted time is listed, staff will post signs about the site’s closure.
On Molokai, registration will be held on the first two days of the program, June 9 and 10.
Children ages 5-12 may register for PALS; children must be 5 years old by June 9, 2015 to participate. A copy of their birth certificate must be provided at registration, along with health and emergency information and a list of individuals authorized to pick them up. Registration fees vary depending on the number of children enrolled per family, and whether the child participates in the DOE’s reduced-price or free lunch program; verified documentation must be provided to receive reduced rate.
The 2015 Summer session will be held June 9 through July 21, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays. Cultural activities include music, dance, arts and crafts, language, ethnic customs, folklore and food. Fundamental skills include team sports, fun skill drills and non-competitive sports and games.
