The Community Schools and Recreation Team works cooperatively with recreation departments and commissions throughout Pitt County to help provide recreation and special activities for children and adults. In communities where no recreation organization exists, the department works with schools and volunteers to provide the service. Recreation programs are provided by utilizing many school facilities during non-school hours and on weekends.
These programs include:
Adult Exercise Classes
Senior Adult Programs
Youth and Adult Sport Programs
