Day camps are offered at select Parks & Recreation centers during summer break for children, grades 1-6. Hours of operation are 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Camp dates and length vary based on location.

Children are supervised by professional recreation staff. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Parents or guardians must provide a daily lunch. Spaces are limited and applications will be accepted on first-come, first served basis.

Camp will not take place on City of Huntsville holidays.


Parents or guardians may apply online or visit the recreation center hosting their preferred camp (listed at the bottom of this page) to register. A separate application must be submitted for each child attending.

Registration for Summer Camps opens in Spring 2023


Each child must be checked in upon arrival and may only be checked out by an adult listed on the registration form. If someone who is not listed on the form comes to pick up a child, the parent/guardian will be contacted to ensure the individual has permission to take the child. No early drop offs are permitted. At this time, transportation to and from the camps is not available.

For more information, contact the Parks & Recreation main office 256-564-8026 or call your preferred recreation center.
