Kiddie Kamp is moving indoors today, Wednesday, June 29.
We're beating the rainy day blues at Kiddie Kamp today by moving the fun into the Firehouse. Drop-off and pick-up will both take place at 127 Mount Vernon Street, so there is no need to visit TERSF today. As Kiddie Kamp will not be visiting the spray deck, we ask that our 3-5 year old campers leave their towels and swimsuits at home.


Plan your fall now: our fall registration is open!

Time to think and plan for fall! Check out our Fall Program & Athletics Guide to see what's in store. Fall 2016 registration opened to the community on June 2. Registration is first come, first served, so register today to make sure your child gets a spot in their favorite programs! And, by registering early for our flagship in-house soccer leagues, you help us ensure that we have more time to create balanced and competitive teams throughout the league.

Join GPS & Hill House on TERSF for our summer soccer clinics.
Head out to TERSF from August 29 to September 1 to get ready to take part in our summer soccer clinics with GPS. The GPS Juniors Soccer program for 3-6 year olds will help to solidify the fundamentals of the game while the 7-14 year old GPS & Hill House Summer Soccer Clinic will get your more serious player ready for their fall soccer season in our in-house programs.
