American Style Karate
Through careful instruction, students are taught techniques in the art, sport, and self defense aspects of karate.
This week long class participants will create unique and creative useful new items out of everyday things we might normally throw away. Participants might turn water bottles into toys or old boxes into new works of art! The purpose of this class is to raise community awareness of the three R’s, "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle", by taking materials traditionally discarded as waste like plastics and paper and creating artful items out of them. Each class will feature a brand new project.
Dungeons and Dragons Camp
Three Suns Unlimited, Longview’s premiere game store, and Parks and Recreations have created a Dungeons and Dragons camp for kids! Participants will use their imaginations as they learn the game, create characters, and take those characters on a heroic adventure. Besides being a fun hobby studies have shown that playing D&D cultivates creativity, Improves social skills, encourages cooperation, and teaches problem solving. Each participant will receive their own set of game dice and a miniature of their character.
Longview Parks and Recreation Department is currently seeking qualified instructors who are passionate about their trade! If you are interested in possibly leading a youth or adult class, please send an email to the Recreation Program Coordinator with your information and the type of class you would like to teach.
