Registration open for summer recreation programs

Summer Rec (3)

Jackson youth looking for something to do this summer have plenty of opportunities thanks to the City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Department. Registration is now open for camps and programs that will keep youth active during the summer months. 

The following is a list of programs scheduled this summer: 

  • Corey Pryor Track and Field Camp 
  • Soccer Camp (New program!)  
  • Al Glick Baseball/Softball Camp (Free!)
  • Wrestling Camp 
  • Jeremy Patterson Boys Basketball Camp 
  • Nacoya Weatherspoon Girls Basketball Camp 
  • Football Camp 
  • Cheerleading Camp 
  • Gymnastics Program 
  • Tennis Lessons Program 
  • Golf Lessons Program 

More information about the programs is available on the City website by visiting cityofjackson.org/youth. That web page is where registration forms may be downloaded. Forms are also available at City Hall. Completed forms are to be mailed or submitted in-person to the Parks and Recreation Department on the 5th floor of Jackson City Hall, 161 W. Michigan Avenue. 

Kelli Hoover, Director of Jackson Parks and Recreation, says her department is looking forward to a full schedule of programs this year. “Families with busy schedules can take advantage of the short camps, or enroll kids in something with a longer time commitment like our programs,” Hoover said. “Our collaboration with Jackson Public Schools means these programs are offered at a low cost to families in the school district.” 

The Parks and Recreation Department is also offering a wide range of adult and active aging programs, family outings, and swim lessons this summer! Learn more about these programs from the Spring/Summer 2022 Parks and Recreation Brochure
