Youth Programs

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, such as our Youth Aquatic program and Kid Fitness.

Healthy Herd


Healthy Herd Youth Camps are held throughout the summer and holiday breaks during the school year. Drop your kids off during their break from school at the Rec to play great games, create awesome crafts, swim, and rock climb! All they need is a swimsuit, towel, change of clothes and closed toed shoes. For more information on camp registration deadlines and prices give us a call at 304-696-4732.
