PITTSBURGH, PA (September 24, 2020) Over the past several years, Citiparks has offered their KidSMART Club program as an after-school program for children in 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Citiparks has re-imagined their KidSMART Club into an @Home program!
Per Ross Chapman, Director, Department of Parks and Recreation, said “With the success we had this summer with our CitiCamp@Home Kits, we are really excited to be providing this education support during the school year."
This KidSMART Club @ Home program supports a wide variety of fun and educational STEM/STEAM, Art and Enrichment learning, along with health and wellness! The current program will run for 11 weeks beginning October 5, 2020. Registration is required to participate and on-line registration can be accessed here.
Kits have been designed with activities that match each week’s theme. These kits will be distributed every Monday (beginning 10/5/2020) from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Recreation Centers of registration, during our Grab ‘N Go Meal distribution.
These locations are:
