PCC Summer Rec Program is committed to providing a fun and compassionate summer recreation experience for all. A healthy and safe environment for participants and our staff is of the utmost importance as well.


Seven-Week Program with Extended Care
For Girls and Boys Ages 4-14


The Summer Recreational Program is on the campus of Preston High School, located on Schurz Avenue near the Throggs Neck Bridge, and offers both excellent indoor and outdoor facilities, yet our goal is to spend as much time outside as possible.  The campus overlooks the Long Island Sound and allows the children a relaxing lunch break.


PCC’s Summer Recreational Program was founded with the mission of providing a caring environment that is safe and fun for all our youth.  Our goal is to develop and enhance each child’s self-esteem.  Activities are designed to be fun and also educational.  For the past 3 decades, we have provided the youth in this community with an affordable opportunity to spend their summer months interacting with other children and developing new skills.
