"Creating community for every person, every day through exceptional recreational activities."

The City of Bonney Lake and the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District have operated a joint Recreation Program since 1991. The City of Bonney Lake took the lead in administering this program in fall 2017. Activities are offered at various Sumner-Bonney Lake School District and City of Bonney Lake facilities. The Recreation Department has been active and instrumental in providing community for all, especially the children of Bonney Lake and Sumner. The Summer of 2020, they safely provided a modified version of their Action Day Camp with zero Covid exposures. Fall of 2020, they provided along with the Before and After School staff a safe place for children to come and do their distance learning while their parents were at work. The staff quickly learned how to help the children with their Zoom lessons while providing nutritious meals and outdoor games and crafts. They were able to be flexible with the students when they partially returned to the school and then back to normal programming once the district was fully operating again. 

Payment must be received along with registration form in order to be fully registered. Payment can be made over the phone with Visa/MC.
You also can use your phone to scan the documents and send to us!

We regret to inform the community, but after 25+ years we will no longer be offering The Bonney Lake Recreation Department Before & After School Activity Club.  The SBLSD will be contracting with "Right At School" for all your before and after school needs.  You may use the link from the SBLSD's website to find out more information and register.   We are grateful to all our families that have gone through our program, we will miss your kiddos!! We have been lucky to have supported you and the kids during distance learning (where our staff quickly became Zoom meeting experts!), modified distance learning where we were all trying to get kids back in the classrooms, to full regular school days!  We were able to do all that safely for your children.   We thank you!  Best of luck in the future and we hope to still see your family in one of our other many programs!
Our Site Directors are experienced with working with children and plan fun activities, crafts as well as some quiet time to read or complete school work. All staff are 1st Aid/CPR certified as well as have completed a background check.
