Anchor2019 Spring and Summer Recreation

Spring and summer bring about a lot of fun activities with Basalt Recreation.  We offer pre-k-1st grades soccer and tennis for middle school students in May.  Junior Golfs wraps up the school season on the last week of school.  As summer comes around we are gearing up for some fun sports camps with Garry Pfaffmann and the Basalt Longhorn Basketball camp.  Get creative with D.D. Gerdin with 2 beading classes in June and don’t forget to register for the fly fishing 2-day camp with Taylor Creek.  We offer tennis lessons for players of all ages throughout the summer plus a Saturday morning family tennis get together.  Our baseball, softball and coach pitch is set to start as soon as school lets out, starting with the Rockies Skills Challenge on May 29 at 2 PM at BMS.  We also have many options for your child to get out and enjoy our wonderful Rocky Mountains with Hiking and Rock Climbing Adventures.  We are mixing up the Rock Climbing with some new adventures at the Monkey House in Carbondale and BHS new climbing wall.
