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 youth 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.
Through Recreation Worcester, we provide access to free enriching youth development program based in arts, athletics, academics and social-emotional learning. We operate as an employment opportunity for youth 16 and older as well.
This summer there will be 12 in-person sites at public parks. Spots are limited; there is a maximum of 25 spots per site. In-person programming is FREE and includes food. In-person program will begin on July 6 and will end on August 13 (9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.).
Additionally, we will be offering a free virtual program that will take place online from July 6 to August 13 (10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.).
Registration is required to participate in all programming. Participants must be 7-13 years old.
