Summer Program


The Kingsport Parks and Recreation department has made the difficult decision to cancel its Summer Program for 2020. While the decision is one out of caution for the safety and health of summer program participants, staff have come up with unique and fun ways kids can still get involved and have fun this summer!

Here are other programs your children can choose to take part in:

Summer Program in a Box

Outdoor Pickleball

NBA 2k

Fortnite Fridays

Travel Trainer

For more information on these programs, Contact (423) 224-2489 or (423) 343-9723.

Additional programs for disc golf, archery, tennis, walking, cornhole toss, nutrition, health/wellness and much more will be offered later this summer. Stay tuned and check out Kingsport Parks and Recreation on social media for more information about these exciting opportunities!
