Hub City Summer

Dear neighbor:

Dear Neighbor,

The boundless freedom of summer often poses challenges in keeping our children engaged and away from constant screen time. As a parent myself, I appreciate the importance of structured and accessible activities suitable for all age groups. We introduced this guide to assist your family in making the most of our city’s offerings during the warmer months.

This year, we are excited to release the third edition of the guide. It highlights a variety of activities provided by our public entities and partners, suitable for for our children and youth and their families.

While it’s not exhaustive, it serves as a helpful starting point. I also encourage you to explore additional programs and camps offered by local churches, arts groups, and other community organizations. As summer approaches, we hope this guide proves valuable in your planning. We aim for it to inspire our youth—and those young at heart—to explore and engage more deeply with our community. We hope it encourages their involvement in positive, enriching activities.

Should you need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our office at 601-545-4501. We wish you a productive and enjoyable summer break.

All the best,

Toby Barker
Mayor – City of Hattiesburg
