Free Spring Break Media Workshops at JHW!

Spring break is around the corner! Please join us for an animal themed week of pop-up media workshops at J. Hood Wright Recreation Center (351 Fort Washington), running from Tuesday 4/11- Friday 4/14. Meet animals, make animations, and take photographs! 

Each day there will be two blocks of media workshops, one in the morning from 11am-1pm and one in the afternoon from 2:30-5pm. In between, from 1pm-2:30pm, youth may stay for activities with the Urban Park Rangers (Tuesday and Thursday) or recreation staff (Wednesday and Friday). If your child is participating in multiple activities in a day, be sure to pack a lunch/snack (no nuts, please!). Weather permitting, some activities will be outside. 

These programs are for youth members ages 6-12. The workshops are first come, first served and we have space for up to 20 youth members per block. Your child is welcome to come to as many or as few of these activities as work for your schedule. The activities are designed to flow into each other, but can also stand alone. Please sign up for a free youth membership in order to attend our programs.
