Augusta County Parks and Recreation introduces RecCreate! An exciting new program offering children the opportunity to experience new activities, increase physical activity, express creativity, develop friendships, build self-esteem and improve social skills. This program will strive to help children grow in abilities and interests, life skills, leadership skills, good citizenship and community engagement.
The RecCreate program will operate weekdays at multiple locations during the 2019-2020 school year and is open to all kindergarten through fifth grade children. This would include children attending Augusta County schools, children who are homeschooled, children attending private schools, or children attending schools in surrounding localities. Transportation is not provided to or from program locations.
RecCreate will follow the Augusta County School calendar for operational days. The program starts at approximately 3:00 pm each day and concludes by 6:00 pm. The following are planned RecCreate locations: Cassell Elementary, Churchville Elementary, Clymore Elementary, Riverheads Elementary, Stuarts Draft Elementary, Stump Elementary and Wilson Elementary (locations subject to change). Please be sure to read over the Parent Handbook (coming soon) for additional important information on operational policies and procedures.
