Huntsville Parks & Recreation offering student day camps during Thanksgiving break

Published on November 16, 2021

After hosting a successful Fall Break Day Camp in October, Huntsville Parks & Recreation is now registering children for its Thanksgiving Break Day Camp online and in-person.

The camp, which will take place Nov. 22-24, costs $30 per camper and $15 for each additional camper. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day; however, parents/guardians must provide lunch. Activities will vary per recreation center and include physical activity, outdoor play, arts and games.

Huntsville Parks & Recreation offers day camps at nine City of Huntsville recreation centers during four weeklong breaks on the 2021-2022 HCS calendar. Upcoming camps will provide affordable, inclusive and fun programming for K-6 students from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Winter Break: Dec. 20, 2021 to Jan. 4, 2022
  • Spring Break: March 14-18, 2022

“We value the assistance we can provide families that have parents and guardians who work when children are normally in school,” said Parks & Recreation Director Bernita Reese. “We are proud to provide students with a variety of programming in a safe and supportive environment.”

To sign up, a parent or guardian must complete a registration packet for each child online or in-person at one of the City’s participating recreation centers. To learn more about the day camps, visit HuntsvilleAL.gov/daycamps or contact one of the following centers:
