Youth Recreation Programs
Overview
Building strong mountain kids since 1971!

Our Summer Youth Recreation Program is over 40 years old! From modest beginnings in 1971 with a handful of kids playing tennis and Little League at Atkinson Park we currently provide over 300 kids with fun and challenging summer activities that take place at six of our fourteen local parks and as well as recreation areas regionally.

The After School Program has grown tremendously since it formally began in 1996 with the construction of the Wreck and adjacent Christina Potters Outdoor Ice Rink. Winters are long in the mountains of south central Idaho and we are fortunate to have an abundance of outdoor activities right here in West Ketchum. We provide a safe place for second graders and up to come after school. Kids enjoy supervised creative freeplay as well as organized activities led by the most dedicated staff in the valley at a 15:1 supervision ratio. Online registration is ongoing.

The Recreation Center at Atkinson Park (900 Third Avenue North, next to Hemingway Elementary School) provides a safe haven for children year round. The "Wreck" is known to children who spend their formative years as Park Rats at Atkinson Park and to older kids and adults who return for work or play. The Wreck is open during business hours most of the year and seven days a week while the Christina Potters Outdoor Ice Rink is operational.
