The Marshall Recreation Center and Healthy Herd Youth Camps welcome you to a fun summer of camps. The Healthy Herd Youth camps have two age groups in order to supply weekly camps that are geared toward age-appropriate and engaging activities. Little Marcos is for campers ages 5-9 and currently in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The Future Herd is for campers ages 10-14 and who are currently in middle school or early high school. We assure quality and consistent care with qualified staff. The atmosphere at camp is one that emphasizes community relationship, but also recognizes individual achievement, creativity, and original thinking. Our trained staff works daily to offer enrichment activities in areas such as arts and culture, environmental stewardship, health and fitness, swimming and more.
