2013 Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge Kick-off

Forsyth County Parks and Recreation has partnered together with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools Office of Parental Involvement on the second annual Amazing Summer Escape Challenge!

Join the fun at Hanes Mall on Saturday, June 1, 2013, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm for the official kick-off for the summerlong event!

The Amazing Summer Escape will encourage, guide, and support learning opportunities for all ages throughout our community this summer. There are different challenges to the program that encompass reading, safety, health and fitness, character and community service, math and science, play and learn, and arts exploration and enrichment.

We are excited to announce one of our summer initiatives as being our Tuesdays at Tanglewood nature programs! We began these programs in 2011, and will be starting them up again for Summer 2013 this June. Stay tuned to our website for more information coming soon!
