Community Afterschool Programs with Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources

News posted Aug. 22, 2018 - 2:00 pm

The Community Afterschool Program (CAPS) is a free recreation-based program for youth in kindergarten through sixth grade that is offered at 14 local community centers across the City of Raleigh. The program includes recreational games, arts, crafts, and various special activities. A light snack is provided daily. Program participants will also have time to work on homework with some assistance; however, we do not provide tutoring services.

CAPS is available Monday through Friday afternoons following the Wake County School System’s traditional calendar. We do extend hours to cover planned Early Release days. While there is no program on teacher workdays, holidays or when schools close early due to inclement weather we do offer alternate programs to assist in these times. Please make sure to ask about our Weatherbound program for inclement weather days and Youth Escape School (YES) program for teacher workdays. Transportation is not provided.

Program hours vary by site. For more information, please contact a participating community center.
