Community Centers

Community Center Picture


The goal of school-based Community Centers is to offer citizens a variety of social, educational, and recreational programs designed to best meet the needs of community members of all ages in which the Centers serve.  The Centers provide less structured programs geared toward developing community relations and providing needed supportive services.

Charles County Department of Community Services operates eight Community Centers throughout the county.  The centers are home to a wide variety of programs including: arts & crafts, dance and exercise programs, afterschool programs, summer camps, community programs, special events, and many sports programs and activities.
