Hub City Summer

Dear neighbor:

Sometimes, the freedom of summer can present a real challenge to keep children engaged, learning and at least momentarily away from the television and electronics. As a parent, I understand the true value of organized and accessible activities for all ages.

Last year, we launched this guide to help you and your family plan to experience the best of our city throughout the summer months. This year, we’re proud to present the second edition of this guide that continues to share a snapshot of activities available to our community’s youth from the public entities with which we work and partner. It also includes programming opportunities and special events for young adults, seniors and everyone in between.

While not a complete guide to everything our city offers, it is a nudge in the right direction. I also encourage you to look for other activities and camps at churches, arts groups and other local organizations.

As we enter the summer months, we hope this provides value to you as you plan. We hope it challenges our children and youth (and the young at heart) to discover more about the city around them. We hope it keeps them involved in positive activities. If we can assist in any way, please reach out to our office at 601-545-4501. We wish you a very productive and relaxing summer vacation..

All the best,
Toby Barker Mayor – City of Hattiesburg
