Swimming lessons and other in water programs are offered on a regular basis, as well as recreational swimming. NCCRC partners with the local schools for swimming lessons, offering an alternative to the learn to ski program. Lifeguard classes are held 3 times a year. The rec center also hosts a regional swim team, for ages 8 – 18; offering coaching and competition with St. Johnsbury and IROC swim teams. Practices are bi-weekly from November through March, and again from June through July.

The 12’x16’ multi function room is used for meetings, and small programs; and may be rented for parties and functions.

The outdoor skating rink was constructed in the fall of 2007. The rink is open for skating in season, and has lighting for night skating. The rink is reserved for hockey 2 evenings a week. It may be used for basketball, street hockey and other activities during the warmer seasons.

The children’s playground was completed in 2008, and draws many. Picnic tables and barbecues offer a place for family meals or larger parties. Sand volleyball, shuffleboard, bocce courts and horse shoe pits round out our outdoor
recreational options.

The NCCRC is home to the OWLS Program (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) and is designed to serve the seniors in 21 North Country towns to improve physical and social well being for all participants. The OWLS Program combined the programs of “Seniors for Life” based at the North Country Community Recreation Center and the “Healthy Older Adult Program (HOAP)” sponsored by the town of Colebrook in October 2010 in partnership with the Indian Stream Health Center, Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, Town of Colebrook and the North Country Community Recreation Center.
