About

Howard County Recreation & Parks offers music & theater arts programs, workshops and camps year-round.

Music programs and camps include culture; drums; guitar; hand drumming; keyboard; music foundations; music production; piano and vocals. Programs are offered to students at all levels of play. Programs and camps allow students to work individually as well as part of a group to improve their skills.

Theater programs and camps range from one-day workshops to full scale productions that include lights, sound, set and props. Programs and camps allow students to work individually as well as part of a group. Students enrolled in theater programs and camps audition for parts and most, if not all students, have the opportunity to get more than one part per production.

Inclusion Services

Howard County Recreation and Parks strives to make programs available to all individuals with disabilities and complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Inclusion Services provides a variety of supports to individuals with disabilities who choose to participate in any recreation program or class offered by the department. Inclusion accommodations may include financial assistance, accessibility, companions, additional training, medical, and interpretive services for the deaf or hearing impaired.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to register for general recreation programs of their choice. Howard County Recreation and Parks Department has developed an inclusion process to better accommodate citizens with disabilities. To ensure that we meet your program needs, please call 410-313-4628 or 410-313-4708 at least two weeks before the program begins.

The Inclusion Process:
Look through the brochure and find a class or program you like.
Register for the program. Let us know what you need to participate on the registration form or when you call to the person taking the registration.
Examples may include effective communication for the deaf or hearing impaired, improved signage, activity modification, additional staff training, companions, accessible equipment and facility features, and/or individualized planning for program or class participation. 
Therapeutic Recreation Staff will contact you to discuss strategies for inclusion and to offer an opportunity to share additional accommodation information. You will be asked to complete this confidential survey to help us better serve you.
Each request is assessed on an individual case by case basis. Additional information may be needed to address the request.
Modifications or accommodations will be made as needed.

Companion Services are not guaranteed.

Come live, learn, and choose your fun!
