About the Catskill Recreation Center

The Catskill Recreation Center (CRC) is a not-for-profit organization with a state-of-the-art swimming pool and exercise facility located in Arkville, NY (on County Highway 38 between State Routes 28 and 30).
CRC provides affordable recreational opportunities to the community and is the “go-to place” for fitness, friendships, and fun. We offer a diverse array of swimming and fitness classes, family and youth programs, personal training, and American Red Cross instruction.

The Catskill Recreation Center was conceived of by the Kingdon Gould Jr. Family who has deep roots in the Catskill Mountains. The Kingdon Gould Jr. Family funded the creation of the Catskill Recreation Center. After three and almost a half years of fitness, friendships, and fun the members of the Catskill Recreation Center wanted to say Thanks.

RECREATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM

We are moving forward with the Recreation Incentive Program.  Our plan is to offer free programs/workshops to the public to get people excited about exercising and recreating.  So for example: Hiking- what to pack for a day hike, one night, three night trip.  How to read a map/orienteering.  Then go on a hike.

The incentive is, if people participate in 3 workshops they get one month membership free.  4 workshops two months free, 8 workshops six month membership free.  Our goal is to reach people who are currently not members.  If you have friends that you would like to have come to the gym please let them know.  The first week of June is when we start this program.  We will have more info on our website shortly.

Donate to the
Catskill Recreation Center

While membership has grown steadily, membership fees cover less than half of the operating expenses; therefore, the Catskill Recreation Center relies on generous individual donations and grant awards to keep the doors open.

Given the resounding and immeasurable benefits that the Catskill Recreation Center has had in the greater community, we ask you to make a donation to the CRC to help us sustain and expand our programming, so we can continue to serve the well-being and recreational interests of both youth and adults in this area.
