Recreation Magazine: May - August 2022


Program Spotlight

A Message From Our Executive Board

As we enter into a new year of recreational and personal enrichment programming at RARA, I wanted to provide the community and our sponsors an update on recent events and detail what’s ahead in 2022! 

Specifically, I’d like to share a summary of RARA’s 2021 programs, and highlight all we have planned over the next 12 months.


We were proud to celebrate RARA’s 75th anniversary in 2021, continuing a tradition of providing recreation programming to the communities of Rochester and Rochester Hills – since 1946. 

Last year, RARA served 10,000 participants, engaged in 1,000 activities, including baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tee-ball, dance and field hockey. Our summer day camps continued to create lifelong memories for kids age 5-14. And our partnerships have grown significantly with local business to increase our enrichment, educational, and arts programs. Even as the pandemic continued, we offered safe activities both in person and virtually.


Youth basketball, volleyball, judo, Magic indoor soccer, along with our competition and recital dance programs and baby sitters safety training classes are all underway. We have about 190 individual programs that began just this month alone.

And what’s next? Our Spring Break Camp, Daddy Daughter Dance and Mother Son Date Night, and our Family Bingo Night are coming up. Youth baseball, softball and tee-ball and adult softball and cornhole leagues – a total of 183 programs –  are set to begin by the end of April. These will be followed by our popular summer camps, registration for which opens on April 1st.  

If you’re looking for unstructured play, stop in to our facilities at 480 and 500 E. 2nd St. and enjoy the indoor playscape, turf fieldhouse, basketball/volleyball courts, inline hockey rink and fitness center.

RARA welcomes all to enjoy the recreational opportunities of our community, designed to build relationships, confidence and camaraderie. You can view our Recreation Magazine here: You can also search programs by age, gender, day, or time on our website at Registration is open 24/7.

We look forward to serving you for another 75 years!
