about these free activites available

to you! 

       ​Starting June 1st for Children, Teens, and Adults!

       These programs always come with some swag!

        if you're doing one reading program you might as well

       do them all and get the freebies! Do this one and your

       child can pick out a free book when they have completed

       their reading journal. 

  • Book Adventure from Sylvan this summer reading program is great because children can take quizzes about what they read to work on their comprehension! Earn points from quizzes and earn prizes. Prize library listed here

  • Microsoft YouthSpark Camp This is a FREE camp from Microsoft! Our closest location is in Pioneer Square and it's first come first serve. There are 4 different types of camps for ages of kids 8+. 3 coding classes  and one about starting your own business (age13+).  Check it out!

  • Roaring Fun with Club Bridgeport Come and enjoy lots of fun with themed weekly events Sponsored by The Oregon Zoo! July 6-August 31 (Wednesdays) 11:30am-1:00pm in Center Court.

  • Performances at the Libraries TBD. Murray Scholls, Tigard and Beaverton library are the closest to us with performances throughout the summer.  Reptile man, comedian jugglers, mad science and other various fun performances are provided for free. Lines can get long quick, especially for Tigard and Beaverton events. Stand in line 20-25 minutes early for a great spot. Also check all the schedules, if you can make it to a perfomer at one library, chances are they might be at one of the other libraries at a later date. 

 

 

  • City Park Fountain your kiddos can always cool off at the fountain by the Beaverton Library! 

  • Nature Mobile The nature mobile is a mobile classroom with nature and science related information, activities, and games featuring different topics each week. You can find them at different parks in beaverton during the summer. Click the to view the drop in schedule.

 

 

  • Get a Cultural Pass from the Library! I linked the Beaverton library, but all libraries around here have cultural passes. I believe the amount of people admitted for free depends on the specific pass. Reserve your pass in advance for best luck, then check out your pass the morning of your adventure and return at the circulation desk or the drop off box when you are done with it. Must be returned the same day.  Passes are available from the Beaverton Library for : A.C. Gilbert’s Discovery Village, Chinese Classical Garden, Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, The Japanese Garden, The Oregon Garden, Pittock Mansion, Rice NW Museum of Rocks & Minerals, Washington County Museum

  • Water Wednesdays at SW Bible on Weir Rd, (its that big church you see going up Murray Blvd.) Wednesdays in August. Noon - 2:00 pm. "We roll out the hoses, kiddie pools, inflatable slides and more for plain old fun in the sun. So, slather the kids up with sunscreen and join us! Once again you will find us out in our yard! Did we mention that we like to be out there as much as possible while the warm sunny days are around? Parents get a chance to relax and socialize under the shade tents while watching their kids have a blast getting soaked! Trained and screened volunteers make sure everything runs smoothly and everyone is safe. Definitely a summer highlight for the kids—SW kids and our surrounding community are all invited! What to expect: We have seating provided under some shade tents. Some families come early with their picnic lunch—to make a day of it! Don't forget to bring a towel and sunscreen. Restrooms are available for changing and "breaks" .***We serve snow cones at 1 pm for a fun treat!*** We also have a playground for those who like to play, but not in water!
