Summer Youth Program
To ensure the safety of the public during the coronavirus outbreak, there will be no in-person Summer Youth Program this year. However, Clarksville Parks and Recreation has now finalized plans for a free "virtual" summer camp experience! It will take place from June 1-July 10 and registration is not required.
The virtual camp will consist of two components: weekly activity packs that children can enjoy at home, and virtual programming which will be here and on the Clarksville Community Network. Children can participate in one or both components.
The activity packs will be offered free of charge while supplies last and contain at-home recreational, educational, and enrichment programming. Activities will be included that are appropriate for ages 6-12. We are partnering with the Clarksville-Mongomery County School System to provide a well-balanced program.
Activity Packs can be picked up by parents/guardians curbside (while supplies last) at Kleeman, Burt-Cobb and Crow Recreation Centers on the following schedule:
- Monday, June 1: 10 a.m.-12 p.m. & 5 p.m.-7p.m. (for camp weeks 1 & 2)
- Monday, June 15: 10 a.m.-12 p.m. & 5 p.m.-7 p.m. (for camp weeks 3 & 4)
- Monday, June 29: 10 a.m.-12 p.m. & 5 p.m.-7 p.m. (for camp weeks 5 & 6)
Independent of the activity packs, three virtual programming videos will be shared weekly. Just like the activity packs, programs will be focused on personal enrichment, education, or recreation. A few examples of what we have in store for camp programs include making ice cream, crafting "apple volcanos," and the importance of treating others with respect.
Videos will be available on this page every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Also, thanks to a partnership with CDE Lightband, camp videos will also be shown on the Clarksville Community Network (CCN) channel. CDE Lightband customers can find CCN on channel 6 or 908 (in HD) on their video line up or channel 6 for streaming customers.
Unfortunately, due to the cancellation of the in-person camp this year, the City will not be participating in the Summer Food Service Program offered through the United States Department of Agriculture. Once a list of local churches and organizations that are participating in the area is made available, we will share that information on our website.
We look forward to June 1 and the beginning of our virtual camp experience!
