Youth Programs

Rec Center COVID-19 Update

The Marshall Rec is currently closed until further notice. View a full list of cancelled programming and more information on the Rec Center COVID-19 policies and procedures.

The Recreation Center is home to a variety of youth camps and programs for kids of all ages. Our youth camps, such as Healthy Herd and Kid’s Night Out, emphasize developing healthy lifestyles through participation in physical activities. We offer multiple youth fitness programs here at the Rec!

Healthy Herd


Healthy Herd Youth Camp is an active day camp, full of games, activities, climbing and swimming. Specific activities vary on a day to day basis, and theme weeks all lend to a fun “not boring” camp. Our camp counselors have the energy to match the campers, and act as mentors and coaches to provide a safe environment for campers to grow. Summer youth camp is for children ages 5-12, while the holiday & break camps are for ages 4-12, no exceptions. Campers must bring a lunch; snack is provided. For more information on camp registration deadlines and prices give us a call at 304-696-4732.
