Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation 2019 Winter-Spring Recreation Programs

Post Date:12/05/2018 4:00 PM

The Town of Chapel Hill is nationally regarded for its quality of life. Public parks and recreation are the gateways to a healthier, more livable community.

Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation has released its 2019 Winter-Spring Recreation Programs and Summer Camp activities. Browse all our programs and register online at, or pick up your own printed copy of our activity brochure at one of our recreation or aquatic centers, the Chapel Hill Public Library, Chapel Hill Public Housing offices, and Town Hall. 

Featured in this year’s line-up are new recreation and community events, including Autism Awareness month presented in partnership with the Autism Society of North Carolina, and a free showing of the film "Keep the Change" about young adults on the Autism Spectrum in New York and their pre-conceptions of what autism and love are supposed to look like.

We'll also celebrate Black History Month as we explore Black History in Greensboro, N.C. with a guided tour of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum. We'll have lunch at a local favorite, Stephanie’s Restaurant, known for their soul food cuisine. Then it’s on to Charlotte, NC for a guided tour of the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts and Culture.

Join us for a fun twist on the traditional egg hunt! Bring a swim suit and towel because this egg hunt is in the pool at Homestead Aquatic Center! Plastic eggs are filled to float and sink in the pool. Children get to collect the eggs and turn them in for prizes! Come splash with us!

In addition, we've rolled out our Summer Day Camps, plus, a host of new Spring Break Camps designed for diverse recreational experiences. You'll want to make sure and preview all that's available for all day and partial day camps. 

RESIDENTS (persons living in or owning property in Orange County or Chapel Hill town limits) may register beginning 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 7; NON-RESIDENTS may register beginning 8:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14. Summer Camp Registration begins Feb. 5 for residents and Feb. 12 for non-residents.
