  • Information regarding the Town of Hampden response to Covid-19 regarding closures.  Please click link.  Effective 3/25/2020. 

    As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to develop, we are monitoring the situation and assessing potential impacts on the Hampden Recreation Department. This situation remains fluid. We encourage all our patrons to regularly review and follow the latest information from the CDC

    We are taking time now to consider how COVID-19 may potentially impact our summer camps and other summer session programs.  There are many areas to explore from possible date changes to locations to field trips. We know this spring has been strange and that many of us have had events and opportunities  changed as we all work together to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We can certainly relate to those difficult feelings as so many of the programs we hoped to offer this spring have been cancelled. Our goal at the moment is to allow our patrons to look forward to a time where we can reconnect and offer the programs and services you have come to expect from us.

    As spring moves forward and we are able to solidify plans for summer, we will follow up with families who have signed up with concrete details on enrollment, dates, locations, and final plans. We hope to have this information available by late May.
    We appreciate your support of our programs and all that everyone is doing in our community during this challenging time. For any questions, please email Shelley at
