The Recreation Department provides a broad range of recreation and leisure programming for youth of all ages. Recreational sports, lessons, day camps, theater classes, art classes, special events, and Tot Spot are offered year round to youth and families. Our programs provide an opportunity for participants to have fun, learn new skills, develop friendships and life-long leisure interests. Recreation programs are supported in part by the Recreation Partnership - an inter-municipal collaboration between 10 municipalities in Tompkins County, which helps to keep fees affordable for all!
