Philly Play Set to Begin Year Three
Philly Play was started by Councilman Bobby Henon in 2013 to connect kids to healthy play resources. Last year, Philly Play provided 60-minutes of play programming at 10 recreation centers across Philadelphia. This summer, an additional five recreation centers will offer specialized coaching and support from Philly Play Coaches, along with summer programming offered by the Department of Parks and Recreation.
Camps are set to begin in early-July. Click here to find your closest Philly Play center!
