Youth Sports, Group Fitness, and Family Activities

The Mt. Bethel Christian Activity Center is a place for the community. In addition to our youth sports programming, adults are welcome to use our free workout facility complete with exercise equipment, weight room, and walking track. Members and non-members alike are invited to take part youth sports and a variety of fitness classes.

Youth Sports: Mt. Bethel Recreation offers instructional and competitive sports for children and youth ages four to 14. The most important components that we instill are learning fundamentals, team work, and having fun. So that our families can still enjoy time together, we limit practices to once per week and schedule one game per week during each sports season.
