Youth Recreation Programs
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, to providing over 300 kids with fun and challenging summer activities that take place at six of our fourteen local parks as well as regional recreation areas.

The Summer Youth Recreation Program has grown tremendously since it formally began in 1971. We provide a safe place for third-graders and up to enjoy all sorts of summer activities including tennis, gardening, arts and crafts, golf, swimming, skateboarding, mountain biking, ball sports, performing arts and social games. Some activities have limited space so early registration is encouraged.

The program also offers all-day Friday Adventures throughout the summer river rafting on the Salmon River, day-tripping to Dierkes Lake, caving near Shoshone, mountain biking at Galena and other exciting excursions.

From August 20-24, the City of Ketchum hosts the United Kingdom Recreational Soccer Camp (www.uksocca.com). Find out more by contacting Recreation Director John Kearney at .

The Recreation Center at Atkinson Park provides a safe haven for children year round. The "Wreck" is known to children who spend their formative years 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.

City of Ketchum Recreation staff lead all programs along with assistance from professional coaches and youth recreation assistants.

Daily sessions, summer program options, payment plans and scholarships are available. Se hable Español.
