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.
Come join us at this exciting event and sign up for summer programs! The event will be held on May 21 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on the Worcester Common.
