Huntsville Parks and Rec opens registration for spring break camps

HUNTSVILLE – Spring break for primary education students will soon be here, and Huntsville’s Parks & Recreation Department is offering alternatives to help kids from shuttering indoors at home.

Parents and guardians be advised – registration for spring break camps runs through March 1. Registration links can be found on the Day Camp and Specialty Camp pages.

The camps, which are full- and half-days, run March 11-15 and are open exclusively to Huntsville students in grades 1-6. 

According to a news release, the programs are designed to provide an enriching and engaging experience during spring break, offer a mix of games, learning activities and athletics. The camps are held at Huntsville Parks & Recreation facilities and are led by trained staff members. Transportation is not provided.

“These camps are a great way to keep kids engaged in learning and physical activity during the spring break,” Parks & Recreation Director James Gossett said. “They are especially beneficial for working parents and guardians who don’t have the luxury of taking a week off work.”

The cost for a full-day camp is $50 per week, with a discounted rate of $25 per week for each additional child in the same family. Half-day specialty camps cost $25 for the first child and $10 for each additional child.

Payments can be made in cash, check, or credit/debit card, and must be submitted to the facility each child will attend before participation.

Full-day camp locations are:

  • Cavalry Hill Community Center, 2900 Fairbanks St. 
  • Richard Showers, Sr. Recreation Center, 4600 Blue Spring Road  
  • Fern Bell Recreation Center, 107A Sanders Road  
  • Mark Russell Recreation Center, 429 Taylor Road
