Mission Statement: To enrich the quality of life for all members of the community by providing the highest level of recreational programs, facilities and services.
Amherst Recreation puts on several special events for Amherst and the surrounding communities each year. We know that when folks come together, the community is strengthened. From Halloween to Independence Day, we are always working to bring YOU all together.
Next Special Event - WINTERFEST 2023
yOUTH AND ADULT pROGRAMMING:
Participating in Programs at Amherst Recreation is special because we understand that helping to build strong PEOPLE, builds strong communities. From Qi Gong to Basketball, we take great care in finding wonderful instructors who know the value of developing programs that don’t just teach a skill, they also help develop the whole person.
child care programming:
Our Summer Camps & Prime Time After School Program at Crocker Farm are designed to not only care for youth, but are also part of enriching experiences for kids where they can be themselves in a safe and supportive environment.
