The Pottsville Housing Authority and The City of Pottsville will again, this year, sponsor the Summer Recreation Program at 15 sites throughout The City of Pottsville.

The Summer Program runs from Monday, June 12th to Tuesday, August 1st, 2017.

A parent or legal guardian must fill out a registration form for their child/children on the first day of the program. High School and College students are hired to supervise the program at each site. These students, along with their supervisors, plan the activities the children will be doing each day. Please encourage your children to participate in these activities.

In conjunction with the Department of Agriculture the Housing Authority will serve lunches at every site. Summer Meals are available to all children up to the age of 18 with no enrollment and no cost. The Housing Authority contracts with the St. Clair Area School District to supply these nutritious meals. Meals are delivered and served at the 15 sites between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. each day.

The end of the Summer program picnic at the Barefield Outdoor Complex will be held on
