Parks & Recreation offers one-week, half-day specialty camp programs during fall, winter, spring and summer breaks. Dates are subject to change based on decisions made by the Huntsville City Schools.

Camps are for Huntsville City students, grades 1-6. Half-day specialty camps cost $25 per week per student and $10 per week for each sibling.

Please see the listing of Spring Break Specialty Camp offerings below. Recreation center staff will call the parent/guardian to confirm the child has been admitted to the Specialty Camp they have selected. Specialty Camps are first come, first served. The maximum number of children varies by site, depending on the space and staffing. A separate application must be submitted for each child attending.
