GENERAL RECREATION PROGRAMS:

New orders from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department that affect recreation programs were just released June 1. We are excited to confirm there will be an opportunity for us to provide some augmented programming to residents this summer. Under these new orders there are still very strict social distancing, youth grouping protocols, and  contact limitations that require us to further update our Camp, Class and Aquatics program rules, operations, and capacities. However, we are hopeful that we will be able to begin resuming some regular programming in late June. ​
 ​
All City-run recreation camps are cancelled through June 26th. If you or your child are registered for a camp that was due to start in that time frame, you will receive an automatic refund. You do not need to call or email to request a refund. If your program begins in July, please be patient as we await further news from the County. We anticipate more firm dates on camp and class start dates early next week. ​
 ​
Contractor-run camps and classes are cancelled through the month of June, unless the camp/class can be held virtually. ​
 ​
All swim lessons are cancelled through the month of June. ​
 ​
Below are some key notes on summer program areas:​
 ​
Camps​
  • City-run Trip and Travel Camp is cancelled.​
  • Other City-run day camps (Golden Arrow, Winnemucca, Counselor in Training) are expected to be cancelled through mid-June. The camp format when we return will be different than previous years, with children and camp counselors in small self-contained groups not to exceed 12 children. Groups will not mix and there will be no large group activities.​
  • Per the Public Health Order, children may participate in only one camp or recreation/care group during a three-week period so anyone enrolled in multiple programs (here and elsewhere) will need to choose only one.​
  • Most Contractor-run camps will be cancelled for the summer due to social distancing and shared equipment limitations, and full refunds will be given. For any Contractor-run camps that can be held virtually, enrollees will be notified. Those who do not wish to continue virtually will be given the opportunity to withdraw with a full refund if they wish. Note, there is no discount given for programs that are switching to virtual format. ​
Classes​
  • All June classes that cannot be held virtually are automatically cancelled.​
  • For any June classes that can be held virtually, enrollees will be notified. Those who do not wish to continue virtually will be given the opportunity to withdraw and receive a full refund. Note, there is no discount given for programs that are switching to virtual format. ​
  • We are hopeful that some smaller classes that can operate with social distancing (no touching) may be able to resume in July. For example, an art class where participants bring their own supplies or each person is provided individual supplies would be considered no-touch. Larger classes and classes where participants share equipment or physical contact occurs will not resume yet.​
  • Face coverings will be required of instructors and participants at all in-person classes. ​
 ​
Aquatics​
  • Opening the pool is current dependent on the State’s restriction on aquatics facilities being lifted.​
  • Session 1 and 2 swim lessons are now cancelled and will be refunded.​
  • We are still hopeful that Sessions 3 and 4 swim lessons, scheduled to start in July, will happen, if the state lifts its closure.​
  • We are also hopeful that other aquatics programs that can safely operate with social distancing (no touching) will be able to resume soon. These include lap swim and water exercise classes, and potentially Swim Club. ​
  • Locker rooms will not be open for the time being, so participants will need to plan to store their personal items on the pool deck and leave the facility without full shower and wardrobe amenities.​

MILPITAS TEEN CENTER: The Teen Center is closed for all activities. We are not aware of any confirmed cases in the Center’s membership, staff or volunteers. If you have any questions please contact the Teen Center Staff at (408) 586-3231 or visit our website for updates.
