Description of the Sun Dawgs program from the City's Parks & Recreation web site:
The Parks & Recreation Sun Dawgs Program is a collaboration between numerous local organizations. The
purpose is to provide Omaha youth (ages 6-15) a fun, enjoyable summer. This program was expanded into a city-
wide free program in 1994. This year the trained staff will operate 33 sites. Seventeen full-day locations
(operating from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm), eight "morning" (operating 10:00 am - 12:30 pm), and eight "afternoon"
sites operating from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.)
All sites are eligible for field trips, specialist visits, and special events. This 8-week program is available Monday
through Friday from early June through early August. Activities include arts & crafts, games & sports, swimming,
special events & field trips, and visits from specialists. The 24' rock climbing wall, inflatable water tag, and hydrant
parties provide FUN, FUN, FUN.
