Options galore for kids at SV Resort

Open to the public, guests

Express Staff Writer

Goofing around on a playground is a basic and perhaps essential summer activity, but it's only a starting point for kids in Sun Valley.

Sun Valley Resort offers options for budding athletes and recreationists, including figure skating, junior golf and junior tennis lessons.

All summer programs are open to the general public as well as resort guests.

The PlaySchool facility is headquarters for children aged three months to 5 years. Besides a playground, kids have access to supervised activities such as ice skating, swimming, tennis, paddle boating, golf at the Sawtooth Putting Course, bowling, crafts, gondola rides on Bald Mountain and field games.

On Fridays, kids can hop on a hay wagon for a ride and enjoy a picnic.

PlaySchool programs run from two-hour, half-day and all-day lengths.

Costs range from $15 for the wagon ride to $95 for all-day programs.

Babysitting is offered in the evenings.

For more information on the PlaySchool, call 622-2288.

For the older set

Kids six years old and up can participate in the Young Summer Day Camp, a coordinated weekly program of activities.

All-day sessions include lunch and all activities, such as ice skating, swimming, paddle boating, tennis, golf at the Sawtooth Putting Course, bowling, crafts, volleyball, gondola rides and field games.

Half-day and 2-hour camps also are available.

Horseback riding is offered for kids at least eight years old and 52 inches tall.

Costs range from $15 for a hayride picnic or horseback ride, to $95 for a full-day camp.

To reserve a spot or for questions about the day camp, call 622-2135.
