One of the east Coachella Valley's greatest asset, the Desert Recreation District, just mailed its fall 2011 catalog to residents.
The District is responsible for providing meaningful recreation activities, classes and events to people of all ages across many interest categories. They also offer facilities across the region for rent for parties and other gatherings, as well as camps for kids during pertinent school vacation times of the year.
The new catalog is extensive and includes things such as:
- after school clubhouses for school kids
- winter camp
- art workshops like painting
- theater programs
- dance classes like ballet
- musical instrument classes like guitar training
- fitness classes like Zumba or boot camps in the park
- sports like volleyball, basketball and karate
- a soap box derby in December
- special skateboard nights at the skate park
- and even yo-yo championships this year
Never listen to your kids complain about being bored again. And stop saying there aren't enough things to do in the desert.
DRD is now offering gift certificates, which would make a great gift for anyone, as it allows them to pick put their own classes, et. To purchase one, call 760-347-3484.
