The Youth Recreation Division is dedicated to providing fun, challenging, and educational programming.
Pasadena's Youth Recreation Centers provide programming for children aged 5 - 18 years of age. During the school year, the four recreation centers provide a safe after school space for youth to participate in a variety of activities; Arts and Crafts, Sports, Cooking Activities, Field Trips etc. For the summer, the recreation centers have extended hours and two fee based summer camps located in Strawberry Park.
Programs at the recreation centers are free but do require a registration form before participating in our programs. During the summer months free lunch and snack is provided M-F for anyone under the age of 18.
The City of Pasadena recognizes that some residents are financially unable to participate in programs offered by the Pasadena Parks & Recreation Department but still desire the opportunity to experience the benefits of recreational programs and/or services. Pasadena Parks & Recreation offers a Scholarship Program to make recreational programs and/or memberships available to as many City of Pasadena residents as possible.
Eligibility for financial assistance is based on family size and income. Applications can be submitted at any time throughout the year. CLICK HERE to view the application and eligibility criteria!
