Assuring learning excellence and readiness for a changing world





Spring / Summer 2020 
Mankato Area Public Schools Community Education & Recreation Department is actively evaluating and planning for opportunities to serve you this summer. The diversity of our programming requires us to consider each experience, course or camp individually.  Decisions on whether we are able to host a camp or class will be ongoing as directives from the State of Minnesota are provided.  At this point we are planning on announcing the availability of programming on a month by month basis and the proper protocol for transfer of fees or refunds will be implemented.  Thank you for your continued patience as we all learn how to live, learn, and play safely at this unprecedented time.
