The evening Youth Recreation Program for youth 10-18 is slated to start back up on Wednesday, October 2.  Pre-registration by a parent/guardian on-site at The Civic Center is necessary if your child(ren) have not attended this program before.

**New for 2019-2020 Season**

We have changed our registration format to request more custodial and health related information regarding your child(ren).  Even if your child(ren) have attended the Youth Rec Program (“The Civ”), parents will need to complete a new registration–on-site at The Civ) within three weeks.

Saturday hours have changed from 10 AM to 4 PM to 12 PM to 6 PM.
