Do you know a youth who would like to check out cheerleading, get a kick out of karate or shoot hoops with a friend?

Maybe they would like to get creative with arts and crafts, take a crack at computers or try out tennis.

Or take a jab at boxing, tumble into gymnastics or score at sports camp.

The city of Galveston Parks and Recreation Department invites Galveston youth to participate in our super summer recreation program.
