Tri-City teens can tour these colleges and fun parks for just $10. Here are the details

Pasco Parks and Recreation are organizing college tours paired with fun trips to theme parks this summer for Tri-City teens looking to get out and about.

Students in the Pasco School District have priority registration. But the $10 trips and tours will open up for students of any school district the Friday before the registration deadline.

The events are for students ages 13 to 18.

Both college tours are full, though students can be added to a wait list.

On July 19, teens will tour Eastern Washington University in Cheney, then head over to Triple Play Family Fun Park to enjoy an afternoon of fun and a lunch. The $10 fee includes transportation, snack, lunch and entry into the park.

Deadline to register is July 14.

An all-day trip to the University of Washington and Wild Waves Theme & Water Park is also scheduled for Aug. 11. Registration deadline is Aug. 8.

The fee includes a light snack, lunch and dinner will be provided. Each participant should bring extra money just in case they want to purchase other items.

Parks and Rec is also planning a tour of the Whitman Mission National Historical Site in Walla Walla on July 27, and the registration deadline is July 20.

During the tour, students will “step back in time to 1847” to learn about the lives of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, the two famous missionaries who came to Eastern Washington to spread Christianity to Native Americans. Afterward, students will head to Pioneer Park and enjoy a provided lunch and games.

Event funding is made possible by a state grant from the Summer Experiences and Enrichment for Kids program, which aims to increase access to quality outdoor summer programming for youth and communities that have historically been undeserved and those that have been impacted by COVID-19.
