Watervliet Civic Center After School Program

The Civic Center provides children with a safe place to learn valuable life skills that encourage self-esteem and responsible living. The children take part in various activities including learning to use computers in the Computer Room to receiving homework tutoring to taking arts and crafts classes. Lunch is served to all who participate.

The Civic Center runs the program right at the Elementary school. For more information contact the Center at 273-5922 or visit www.watervlietciviccenter.com.

 

Summer Camps

WHA children are eligible to attend many camperships. One such campership is a week camp session put on by the State Police at the local State Police barracks. For many children, this is their first experience at going to “sleep away” camp. When we receive notice for these camperships we try to get as many as possible for our resident children.

Civic Center Day Camp Program

Our children can also attend the Civic center full week day camp program that offers arts and crafts, swimming, field trips and many other good recreational programs. Their is a small charge of $25/week for each child. Camperships and reduced cost are available. More information can be obtained by calling the Civic Center at 273-5922. The center is a great opportunity to attend learn to swim classes sponsored by the City of Watervliet. To know more about the Watervliet Civic Center go to www.watervlietciviccenter.com.

 

Boy Scouts

We are always encouraging our youth to join Scouting. We have some excellent troops and packs for both our boys and girls. It’s a great program that builds character, self esteem and self reliance.

 

Watervliet Little League

This great organization is located only a short distance from the Housing Authority. Brotherhood Park is located on 6th. Ave. and 25th. Street. It's a great organization for both boys and girls.
