Adults can play in a summer adult softball league that begins April 30. The men’s league will be on Monday nights, and the co-ed league is on Friday nights.

Parents can sign their kids up for the Rec Center’s Camp Rec Program. It is offered for children that will be in the first through sixth grades this fall, with a copy of the previous year’s report card.

It is run by college students majoring in education or who have been coaches, according to Recreation Supervisor Brittany Oliver. Weekly themes keep the kids entertained and engaged with field trips, as well.
