Kelli Hoover, Director of Jackson Parks and Recreation, says her department is looking forward to a full schedule of programs this year. “Families with busy schedules can take advantage of the short camps, or enroll kids in something with a longer time commitment like our programs,” Hoover said. “Our collaboration with Jackson Public Schools means these programs are offered at a low cost to families in the school district.”
The Parks and Recreation Department is also offering a wide range of adult and active aging programs, family outings, and swim lessons this summer! Learn more about these programs from the Spring/Summer 2022 Parks and Recreation Brochure.
