Many activities and classes offered through the Chilson Recreation Center have additional requirements for registrants to purchase added supplies or equipment. When this occurs, you will see the added notation at the bottom of each activity/class description within the Leisure Times Activity Guide.
Please refer to the listing below for the comprehensive listing of the supply lists and added requirements for classes:
Each participant in a youth athletics program is required to wear a reversible T-shirt unless otherwise noted (available at Mountain Rentals, Inc.).
The Parks & Recreation Foundation accepts used T-shirts for their scholarship recipients. To donate a gently used shirt, please call: (970) 962-2443.
Each of the athletics offerings has requirements for additional purchases, such as Youth Athletic T-Shirts, shin guards, padding/protective gear, non-marking soled shoes, cleats, etc.
|General Interest Classes:||Supplies Required:|
SUPPLY FEES, PAYABLE AT THE FIRST CLASS

Many of the Day Trips require that you bring additional money for incidentals or to cover the cost of your meals while on the trip.
