Rec. Desk Registration and Information
Historically the Albion Recreation Departments primary emphasis has been to provide activities for youth between the ages of 4 and 14 years of age. As the City changes demographically, the Recreation Department has and continues to explore programming to meet the recreational needs of the entire Albion Community.
The Albion Recreation Department, through partnerships with Marshall Public Schools, Albion College, The Battle Creek YMCA and other non - profit organizations utilizes a wide array of facilities within the city to provide programming for it's residents. This enables the Recreation Department to offer highly successful programs such as Mommy and Me Swimming; Water Aerobics; The Annual Easter Egg Hunt; The Daddy Daughter Dance; Summer Dreams Enrichment Camp; Peapod Summer Camp; Youth Football; Youth Basketball; Music in the Park; Free Movie and Lunch at the Bohm Theatre; The Community Bike Ride Program; T-Ball (which originated in Albion by then Recreation Director Jerry Sacharski) and more to the community.
While the primary goal of the City Recreation Department is to engage residents in leisure activities and to provide healthy lifestyle choices, we also understand and accept the responsibility to prepare our school-age youth for the educational and behavioral expectations of high school and beyond. To this end, many youth programs require that participants meet an academic and behavior standard to participate.
The City of Albion Recreation Department is funded through a Special Recreation Millage, part of which helps fund The Forks Senior Center. The Recreation Departments budget is augmented by grant funding, private donations, and program fees.
