Youth Programs

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

Youth Fitness Orientation


To help young members ages 9-17 learn the basics of proper, effective and safe use of cardio and strength equipment, our Personal Trainers offer private equipment orientations. This complimentary service is available to all current and new youth members. They will learn training techniques to maximize the benefits of their exercise program and review appropriate etiquette and behavior guidelines. Youth fitness orientations are available upon request; reservations must be made at least 72 hours in advance. The sessions last around 30 minutes and are free to youth members. Register at the Pro Shop.
