Summer in The ZONE "Playlist"

Registration Deadline 08/17/2018

Summer in the ZONE is a project to bring activities and summer learning to youth and teens who live in the Northeast neighborhoods of Spokane, Washington.  The program is open to all kids entering Kindergarten through High School. Activities include sports and recreation, summer school, STEM, arts, games, mentoring and much more.  Youth and teens who enroll in the program have access to free breakfast and lunch each day, as well as a "Playlist" of age-appropriate activities designed to engage them in learning and recreation.  

The goals of Summer in the Zone are to maintain the academic gains students experienced during the school year, increase participation in safe and healthy activities that promote learning, and decrease boredom and juvenile delinquency.

Enroll in Summer in the ZONE and start your "Playlist" today!
