With children back to school for their classes, parents have a little more free time to spend enjoying activities on their own. The Middletown Township Parks and Rec Department is offering almost 100 programs this fall just for adults who want to broaden their horizons or engage in a bit of fun time with peers.
Program Coordinator Patrick Graham says the most popular items in the catalog entail some exercise.
“We have a lot of participants for our yoga program, tai chi, zumba, those sorts of programs,” Graham said. “We have a kickball league that runs over the course of 6 Fridays. It normally gets 100 to 150 people.”
Arts classes, dog obedience training, and even country line dancing are on the menu for any adult looking to join.
Golf lessons are also open for registration right now beginning September 8th and continuing every Saturday through October 13th. The program says it can make anyone golf ready in just a few classes and is lead by Director of Golf Dan Hoban: Class A Member of the PGA.
Teens have not been forgotten and three classes are offered to help young adults learn skills useful in life. A babysitting training course will teach students how to care for a child while a free car car clinic will show new motorists how to check tire pressure and change a flat. Drivers Ed is also offered so teenagers can fulfill requirements to get their license.
Young children also have several opportunities with arts, sports, and miscellaneous activities. Flag football, cooking classes, and drawing courses are among the variety on offer. Young mothers can also bring their preschoolers to a Mommy & Me arts class to socialize with other new moms and have a bit of bonding time with their children.
Registration is open right now on the Middletown Township website with some activities starting in less than two weeks. A PDF of the guide is available here. Registration deadlines are 72 hours before the beginning of each program.
