Parks & Rec. offers a variety of day camps each summer in June and July.  Complete details below (but are subject to change).  Refer to our refund policy for information on class withdrawals and cancellations.  Our summer camps are currently scheduled to proceed as originally planned.  We are continually monitoring COVID-19 concerns and governmental recommendations. If it is determined that our camps should be canceled, we will issue campers a full refund (minus the Active on-line processing/convenience fees for those that registered on-line).

Programs and use of facilities offered by the Maryville-Alcoa-Blount County Parks & Recreation Commission comply with the current Executive Orders issued by Governor Lee, and is in compliance with guidelines from the CDC.  Compliance with the guidelines minimizes the risk of exposure to COVID-19 but cannot eliminate the potential of exposure.  If you or your child (as a participant) has a compromised immune system, we recommend no participation in programs or facility use at this time.   Our staff is trying to provide the safest environment possible by following current guidelines and committing to follow any additional requirements made by federal, state, and/or local regulations. If it becomes apparent a quality experience cannot be provided while in compliance with the recommended guidelines, the program will be cancelled and any paid fees will be fully refunded (minus any on-line transaction fees).

ON-LINE REGISTRATION FOR MOST SUMMER CAMPS WILL END 1 WEEK BEFORE THE START OF EACH CAMP.  WALK-INS TO THE ADMIN OFFICE ARE WELCOME FOR SIGN-UPS UP TO 2 BUSINESS DAYS PIOR TO THE START OF CAMP.  NO DAY-OF SIGN-UPS WILL BE TAKEN DUE TO SMALL GROUP PREPARATIONS THAT NEED TO BE MADE BEFORE CAMP.
