  • May 15, 2020-Update from the Hampden Recreation Department
    As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues, we are monitoring the situation and assessing potential impacts on the Hampden Recreation Department. This situation continues to remain fluid. We encourage all our patrons to regularly review and follow the latest information from the CDC

    The Hampden Recreation Department is completing its reopening plan for department operations and programming in light of COVID-19. We anticipate an early June department/Skehan Recreation Center reopening with June programming options being evaluated on a program by program basis under the direction of the State of Maine reopen Phase 2 plan recommendations. Some programs that are intended for high risk populations or are not social distance approved, due to the nature of the sport, will not be offered during Phase 2. All current programming and future programming will continue to be monitored and evaluated based on the latest CDC and state recommendations.   Please refer to the department website,, or department Facebook pages or for program updates and offerings.

    The Kid’s Kamp Summer Camp will be open for day camp June 22-August 7 (barring any unforeseen statewide closures again).   Enrollment is limited to 32 students and only full week spots are available.  Planning is in progress and registered families will be notified by email, by mid-June, with operational protocols and updated program information.  

    Prior to the Hampden Recreation Department and Skehan Recreation Center reopening we will be issuing updates online on operational changes and protocols that have been put in place in light of COVID-19.  Please watch for this information and a planned reopen date. We ask you for your assistance with keeping our community safe as the State of Maine reopens for business.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

    Thank you for your ongoing support of our department and programming. We look forward to seeing all of our participants very soon!
