Multigenerational Center Summer Programs

The Summer Recreation Program is offered for eight weeks, (June to July) every year to school age children and youth from 5 -12 years old at each City Multigenerational 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. Each center provides an assortment of programs and activities that meet community needs and promote community involvement in recreation, cultural activities, education, health and family life activities.

Due to the high participant demand for the City of Albuquerque’s Summer Recreation Program, the Department of Senior Affairs utilizes a "lottery-style" selection of participants. Lottery forms are available at each Multigenerational Center.

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.
