The Rec Project Inc. is an all-inclusive nonprofit program for local youth in the Greater Chattanooga area, located in East Ridge, TN. We offer multiple programs, classes, day camps, and events year-round. Our options include but are not limited to; recreation-based PE for home-school students, after school program, and school break day camps. We serve all students K-12th grades.
Our mission is to give our community’s youth a safe haven to learn, play, and grow into successful independent adults. Overall, the focus is the health of the children in the community, therefore a holistic approach has been taken to promote health: physical activity, nutrition, and life skills. We expect to serve 60-85 students per semester. We offer select low cost to free medical care, including physicals. We will also have a food pantry and emotional support for families to utilize when they are in need.
Interested in helping? Contact us to see where you can be of service. We are happy to take monetary, fitness equipment, food, and/or decor donations. Volunteer staff is also needed, background checks will be completed prior to interacting with the children.
Students will be broken into groups that will rotate through four 45 minute stations: academics/tutoring, physical activity, nutrition education/meal prep, and life skills such as resume building, public speaking, automobile care, emotional health, budgeting/financial education, gardening, etc.
Home-school students have the option to attend after school program or a 90 minute physical education class three times per week.
Camps will coordinate with Hamilton County and Catoosa County school breaks: fall, winter, spring, and summer. Activities will be closely related to after school program activities with longer blocks. We will hold camps at The Rec, East Ridge Parks & Recreation locations, and Catoosa County Parks & Recreation locations.
