Huntsville Parks & Recreation hosting day camps during HCS breaks


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Parks and Recreation is offering day camps for students during the Huntsville City Schools weeklong breaks.

The camps will feature fun and inclusive programming for K-6 students from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The four camps are scheduled for:

  • 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  

The fee for each camp is $50, for families with more than one child the fee is $50 for the first child and $25 for each child after that. A registration packet must be filled out for each child.

“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.” 

Nine recreation centers will be hosting the day camps. Activities will vary depending on the recreation center but will include physical activity, outdoor play, arts and games.

Recreation Centers:

  • Brahan Spring Recreation Center
  • Cavalry Hill Community Center
  • Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Recreation Center
  • Dr. Robert Shurney Legacy Center
  • Fern Bell Recreation Center
  • Lakewood Community Center
  • Mark Russell Recreation Center
