News & Events
Harrison County Parks and Recreation Commission sponsors a summer recreation program, which provides opportunities for Harrison County children to use their summer vacation as a time of growth, learning, and most of all for fun in a safe and wholesome environment.
Daily activities include team and individual sports, group games, arts, crafts, drama and music. Weekly special events can include carnivals, shows, tournaments, contests, special instruction, etc. County competition and field trips are also included.
The program is geared to ages 6 through 12. The program is operated at sites throughout Harrison County. The sites are subject to annual review of participation and community involvement. The number of sites is limited due to budgetary restraints. Areas interested in the program must contact the HCPRC office by the April HCPRC meeting each year. All areas must meet certain criteria, including a minimum number of participants, an adequate and well-maintained site, and a sponsoring group or club for the program. Municipalities must provide matching funding for leader salaries.
Most Summer Recreation program sites qualify for free lunches for the children. Summer recreation programs operate for six to eight weeks during the summer months. Starting dates and hours vary.
Call the HCPRC office for information on individual sites. There is no charge for this program.
