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 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. Out camp counselors have the energy to match the campers, and act as mentors and coaches to provide a safe environment for campers to grow. For more information on camp registration deadlines and prices give us a call at 304-696-4732.
