Newport News Parks, Recreation and Tourism’s Youth Programs is excited to open our summer camp on Monday, June 15th to better serve our working families!  Registration for Summer Camp will open online only on Monday, June 8th starting at 8:00 am. 

The City of Newport News is committed to providing a safe environment for the children in our community.  Our Youth Program’s summer camps have been re-structured to follow the Governor’s orders and guidelines.  To follow these recommendations, our locations, times and activities have been altered to follow current health mandates to include taking our participant’s temperature upon arrival, repeated hand washing and physical distancing. 

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.
