Recreation Youth Programs
Summer Youth Program Registration
The Ogdensburg Parks and Recreation Department began accepting registrations for its 2021 summer sports camps in June, 2021. Sign-ups are at the City Hall (Room 11), 330 Ford Street, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All youth must be signed-up/registered before they are allowed to participate in any Parks and Recreation Department sponsored sports camp. Click here for a registration form. For more information contact the Planning Department at 393-7150, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cost for each camp is $30. The department does run a "Sports Special" so if a child wants to sign up for three sports camps, the cost would be $75, a savings of $15.
