The Summer Recreation Program is offered for six to eight weeks, (June to July) every year to school age children and youth from 5 -15 years old at each City Community Center. Children who are 5 years old at the time of registration must turn 6 by September 1 in order to be eligible to participate.
A registration form will be required from all participants that are selected to participate in the summer recreation program. Due to the high participant demand for the City of Albuquerque’s Community Centers Summer Recreation Program, the Department of Family & Community Services has implemented a “lottery-style” selection of participants. Lottery forms are available at each Community Center. For Community Center information and contact information please click here. Once a center registration is full, a waiting list will be kept and maintained for participants not selected. Parents will be notified as space becomes available.
