Summer 2021 is looking much brighter at Port Huron Parks & Recreation. The department anticipates the return of their usual beloved programs. These include introductory sports classes, swim lessons, art classes, and other events.
Due to the 2020 COVID-19 shutdown, the Port Huron Recreation Department was, sadly, forced to cancel all typical recreational programs last summer. Instead, they had to re-think programming, and therefore shifted to virtual programs and socially distanced play options. The department has continued to offer fun virtual and hybrid programs throughout the fall and winter to provide residents with ongoing recreational opportunities.
With the return of in-person programming this coming summer, additional staff will be needed to supply the department with coaches, lifeguards, programmers, day camp workers, and more. Job applications are available at the City of Port Huron website at https://www.porthuron.org/departments/human_resources/current_job_openings.php.
"This is an excellent opportunity for those looking for a fun, active summer job that will give them lifelong friendships and help them make a difference in our community," said Emily May.
May started working at the department in 2014 as a lifeguard. She has been promoted multiple times and is now a core member of the team as a recreation coordinator.
