The Hot Springs Village Recreation Committee would like to get thoughts and suggestions from residents with children, visiting grandchildren and other interested persons within Hot Springs Village concerning youth involvement activities which may be possible to initiate for the youth of our community. The Committee recognizes that the Village attracts many retirees. Many of the programs we offer are directed toward adults and retirees. With all the amenities the Village has to offer, we attract families with children as well. We are requesting your input on what activities the Village could offer the youth of our community.

The following are activities which have been tried or recommended in the past. Please mark those you feel should be further developed and in which you feel your or other community children could participate.

The Committee will compile the submissions and review how best to develop resources to implement if feasible based on facilities and finances those items considered most popular and practical.
