Youth Programs

Newport News Parks, Recreation and Tourism’s Youth Programs is excited to open our summer camps on Monday, June 21, 2021 to better serve our community!  We understand the importance of play for youth and make it a priority in our programs.  Youth learn important life lessons through play such as sharing, playing fair, cleaning up after themselves and most importantly living in a balanced life.  In our program, participants will be provided opportunities to explore their needs, talents, and abilities through recreation and club activities.  Our planned activities will stimulate imaginations while encouraging independence and focusing on a child's social. emotional, physical, and intellectual development.  To register your child in our Summer Camp Programs, please visit www.redefiningplay.com or call (757) 926-1400. 

All registered participants will receive an email with details regarding pick up/drop off procedures, health guidelines and more.  SPACE WILL BE LIMITED!

Youth Programs is an out-of-school time care operation that prides itself on moving towards its goal of becoming the premier destination for before and after school activities. The program is structured to create a caring and fostering environment that will help children grow as they spend time playing, learning important life lessons, and getting involved in group games.

We are all about convenience which is why we have chosen to primarily operate in elementary schools (although we are also in our convenient community centers). This way here there are no cross town excursions. You can simply drop your child off and have peace of mind knowing that from sun up to sun down we will keep your child safe and active while in our care.
