How to have Fun at the Opelika Sportsplex this Summer
June 9, 2017
Now that school is out for the summer, you may be searching for programs to keep your kids occupied. One of the benefits of owning new homes in Opelika AL, is that you’ll find a variety of children’s programs and activities taking place at the city’s Sportsplex.
Some of the programs offered during the summer at the Opelika Sportsplex and Aquatic Center include a basketball academy, family swim nights, and day camps. Children who have completed first grade to fifth grade can take part in Plex Camp. This typical summer camp gives kids a chance to participate in arts and crafts, games, sports and swimming. Campers also get to take field trips throughout the city and state, including a trip to Splash Adventure Water Park in Birmingham.
The Sportsplex also offers Day in the Life camps that give children a chance to learn about firefighters, police officers and power services, while having fun. At Baton Camp, girls ages 5 and up can learn a baton routine and perform it at the Summer Swing outdoor concert series, held Tuesday evenings at Municipal Park.
One of the new activities being offered to Opelika residents include Toddler Drive-in Movie, which gives children ages 2-5 the chance to make a cardboard car and watch a movie. Another program is the Summer Bucket List, which has people participate in a list of activities throughout the summer. As each item is completed, participants must share a picture with the hashtag #oprbucketlist or send the picture in via email. All those who complete the list will get a prize.
Other activities include gardening and cooking classes for kids. There will also be game days, scavenger hunts, and ice cream socials. Adults can take part in ballroom dancing, receive tennis lessons, join a basketball league and take part in line dancing. A variety of art classes are offered for children and adults too.
