We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation, and cancel further programming if needed. We continue to be in contact with program instructors and participants, and will issue refunds for those that have pre-registered and paid for cancelled programs and events.

Milton Egg Hunt
Thanks to some creative Milton residents, Milton has a socially distanced hunt this year! Decorate your house with Easter and/or spring decorations, then post your street name and other information to the event page in the Milton Community Friends Facebook Group so others can drive or walk by to view! Remember: keep a distance and avoid giveaways so we have germ-free fun. Decorating Tips: Use what you have! Avoid shopping and reuse old decorations. Draw and color new paper decorations. Use cardboard to cut out and create signs. Get creative!
Milton Recreation’s summer camp options are available for registration now! Hooray 4 Summer, Fairies & Elves, Athlete Training, Ultimate Frisbee, Golf, Woodworking, Gettin’ Dirty, Lights Camera Action and so much more!
