Huntsville Parks & Recreation offering student day camps during HCS breaks

Published on September 22, 2021

 Great news for Huntsville City Schools (HCS) parents and students. Starting next month, Huntsville Parks & Recreation will offer Day Camps at nine City of Huntsville recreation centers during four weeklong breaks on the 2021-2022 HCS calendar.

The camps will offer affordable, inclusive and fun programming for K-6 students from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, on the following dates:

  • Fall Break: Oct. 4-8, 2021
  • Thanksgiving Break: Nov. 22-24, 2021
  • Winter Break: Dec. 20, 2021 to Jan. 4, 2022
  • Spring Break: March 14-18, 2022

“With the success and positive feedback of our free after-school programs, the natural progression is to have camps for students during their school breaks,” said Bernita Reese, Director of Huntsville Parks & Recreation. “We value the assistance we can provide families that have parents and guardians who work when children are normally in school. We look forward to offering the camps and providing students a variety of programming in a safe and supportive environment.”

The day camp fee is $50 per week. For families with more than one child, the cost is $50 per week for the first child and $25 per week for each subsequent child. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day; parents/guardians must provide lunch. Activities will vary per recreation center, but include physical activity, outdoor play, arts and games.

A parent or guardian must complete a registration packet for each child online or in-person at the City’s participating recreation centers. To learn more about the City’s Day Camps, visit HuntsvilleAL.gov/DayCamps or call Parks & Recreation at 256-564-8026.
