KINGSPORT — The end of the school year is fast approaching, and if you’re like most parents, you’re probably wondering what you’re going to do with the kids all summer long.

One good option is to enroll them in the Kingsport Parks and Recreation summer program, open to children ages 6 to 12. Kids will get to hang out and play with children their own age, play games, participate in sports camps and go swimming at the Kingsport Aquatic Center. Lunch and snacks are also provided.

The program starts May 29 and goes until July 19 - right before the beginning of Fun Fest.


Parents or guardians can register their children for a particular site on a first-come, first-served basis at the V.O. Dobbins Community Center on the following dates:

· For the V.O. Dobbins location — Register on April 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

· For the Lincoln Elementary location — Register on April 17 from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

· For the John Adams Location — Register on April 18 from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

· For the Lynn View Community Center Location — Register on April 19 from 3:30 to 6 p.m.


Stop by V.O. Dobbins (301 Louis St.) on the date for your preferred site listed above. Each summer program site has a maximum registration limit and availability cannot be guaranteed. All non-city residents must register on April 20 at V.O. Dobbins from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

If a child is a returning participant, you can register online at www.kingsportparksandrecreation.org. If registering for the program for the first time, parents or guardians must go to V.O. Dobbins on the date of your site registration.


The summer program is $55 for city residents and $75 for non-city residents. Parents or guardians who wish to take advantage of the extended hours for the program can do so for an additional cost. The cost includes a T-shirt, lunch and snacks every day, plus field trips and bus rides.
