What is PlayEscapes? PlayEscapes is a FREE summer drop-in program offered by the City of Regina. The program offers leader-facilitated play opportunities that develop and foster life skills, creativity, imagination, positive self-image and promote a physically active lifestyle. Self-directed play is the key to the PlayEscapes program. Children engage in play they select by themselves, and are encouraged to explore and discover activities they enjoy most. Through leader-facilitated self-directed play, children become more active and creative in the play environment while gaining a sense of freedom and choice.

The City of Regina partners with Regina Education and Action on Child Hunger (REACH) to offer a lunch program at some of the sites. Please call 306-777-7146 to find out which site is closest to you.

Who can attend? PlayEscapes is for all children entering Kindergarten (must be 5 years old by December 31, 2016) through Grade 7. PlayEscapes welcomes children and youth of all abilities. Participants who may need assistance during the program are asked to bring an attendant.

How to register? Participant Information Forms are available on site the first day of the program. Parents are advised to visit the sites closest to them and fill out the forms on July 6.

Please note that these Playescapes sites are subject to change due to program space and other circumstances. Call 306-777-7032 to confirm.
