Recreation Worcester

Recreation Worcester is a free, year-round, out-of-school time program for youth run by the City of Worcester. Youth participate in curriculum based learning while focusing on our three main enrichment activities: athletics, arts, and academic programming. Youth also engage with community partners that help build programming and introduce participants to a number of positive, healthy, fun, educational activities. 

Food will be provided to all youths that participate in the Recreation Worcester Program provided by the Worcester Public Schools and/or Friendly House.

Transportation will not be provided by Recreation Worcester. Parents will have the option to select whether their child walks home or is picked up.
