Friday, May 15 is a majorly fun day for Champaign Park District! Here are the 2 registration deadlines and 2 events you don’t want to miss on May 15:
1. Rocket League Competition Deadline to Register
Get ready for Champaign Park District’s first ever FREE 3 v 3 Rocket League competition! Rocket League is a fast-paced video game where players fly around the field playing soccer while driving race cars! Register your team of 3 for some friendly online (and safe) competition. We have beginner, medium, and advanced divisions for players of all skill levels. Games will start on May 23 and will be on Saturday afternoons at 2p with the top teams competing for the championship in a single day playoff from 2-5p on June 20 after a 4-week regular season.
Play from the comfort of your home but make sure you sign up by the registration deadline on May 15!
2. Summer Youth Programs in a Bag/Summer Adventures @ Home Deadline to Register
The first week (May 26-29) of in-person summer youth programs has been cancelled, but we have put together a fun, interactive virtual program for kids ages 6-11:
Summer Youth Programs in a Bag:
Douglass Community Center and Springer Cultural Center have teamed up with Community Matters to create Summer Youth Programs in a Bag! Each activity bag will have an indoor activity, outdoor activity, STEAM activity, virtual field trip, craft, and family activity for each day of Summer Youth Programs.
Summer Adventures @ Home:
Your child will receive fun, interactive activities for the week, including 2 hours (1 hour, 2 times/week) of virtual staff-led activities that keep your kids active and socializing with their “camp friends.”

4. Virtual Friday Night Flix: Jurassic Park
Our park screening of Jurassic Park may be cancelled.. but we still want to watch those crazy acid spitting dinos get wild with our friends! SO – stream it, pop in the DVD, or be kind and rewind that VHS on May 15.
