Summer ROCKS

Summer ROCKS will be back for 2021!


This is a popular, all-day program (7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) hosted at the Fridley Middle School. Summer ROCKS offers continuous activities running June 15 - August 20.  Kids grade K-7 get to participate a wide variety of activities each week (see ROCKS Daily Schedule & Weekly Class Schedule for details).  

All activities are included in the weekly fee of $150.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made some modifications to the format of this program to keep group sizes small, provide social distancing, and ensure a clean environment.  See Programs Modifications for additional information.
