Summer Discovery Playground

Summer Playground

Chanhassen's 2021 Summer Discovery Playground program will be hosted at 11 community and neighborhood parks around the city, with trained staff providing a variety of exciting activities for children including games, arts and crafts, special events, snacks, playtime and more! The program is designed for kids ages 4-12 (children MUST turn 4 by the start of the program). Participants will be split into groups generally based on age.

2021 COVID-19 Safety Measures

The Summer Discovery Playground program will follow the most current state and local regulations and guidelines surrounding COVID-19 at the time of program start. This may include:

  • Mask-wearing by all participants and staff (except when exempt by state regulations)
  • Set limited-size pods of participants and staff
  • Modified games, crafts and activities to encourage 6-foot distance
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitation practices

Please note that specifics surrounding COVID-19 safety measures will likely change before program start. We ask for your flexibility while we work to develop best program formats to keep participants and staff healthy and safe. 

Pod Makeup: Will There Be Tiny Mytes and Dyna Mytes as in Typical Years?

Due to potential pod-size limitations and staffing ratios, sites may not be split into a Tiny Myte group (4-6 years) and Dyna Myte group (7-12 years) as in past years. Instead, the full group of participants (site participant group listed below) will be split into appropriately-sized pods generally based on age. Each participant will be allowed one mutual "buddy request" for their pod. We will do our best to honor these requests, but we cannot guarantee that your buddy will be in your same pod.
