Youth Programs

Summer Lunch and Enrichment Program

Kids need healthy food and healthy activities during the summer months. LCSC offers the program for Lakewood school students in grades K-5 who qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year. Because of COVID-19, we have not been able to offer this wonderful free program, but plans are already underway for the summer of 2023 thanks to the generous support from Healthy Lakewood Foundation!

Kids have opportunities to participate in bowling at Mahall’s 20 Lanes, swim lessons at Madison Pool, and library time at the newly renovated Lakewood Public Library Madison Branch.  Each session offers field trips to the Lake Erie Nature Center in the Cleveland Metroparks, the Rocky River Nature & Science Center in Bay Village, and Beck Center for the Arts.  There is plenty of time to play at Madison Park and time to enjoy crafts and games on rainy days.

Beyond the activities options, delicious lunches prepared by Lakewood’s own Karen King Catering are provided to the kids. The menus include fresh fruit and fresh veggies every day. Who knew eating healthy could be so yummy?

The program is run by five LCSC summer staff members assisted by high school volunteers. Registration forms will be sent to all Lakewood elementary schools just after spring break in 2023. This is a first come first served program and the 80 slots fill quickly. Make sure to get your child(ren) registered as early as possible! We are excited to welcome your kids back next year!
