This includes the communities of Brookings, Harbor, Gold Beach, Port Orford and Agness in Curry County; and Crescent City, Klamath, Smith River, Hiouchi, Gasquet, and Fort Dick in Del Norte County. This resource offers parents and youth a list of fun and creative opportunities to learn new skills, explore careers and enjoy exciting experiences! However, please note that inclusion does not mean that we endorse, support or survey the risk of these activities. The aim here is to provide a starting point, with contract information for you to follow-up and double check program dates, costs and requirements. We hope you will learn about a new local organization or find a resource to coordinate your child’s activity schedule and find free, healthy meals for children throughout the summer.
