The Oneida Indian Nation’s Recreation Center is an invaluable commodity. Serving Nation Members, Health Services clients, American Indian youth and Nation team members, the Rec Center offers its patrons access to a full-sized gymnasium, fitness room, lounge area, kitchen and plenty of storage space. A softball field and box lacrosse field are on-site while a playground and outdoor pool are also available nearby on Territory Road.

The Rec Center currently offers several fitness classes, training programs and recreational sports leagues, but it is also a home for many of the Nation’s youth programs.

In coordination with the Youth Development Department, the Rec Center provides several youth, adult and family-oriented programs. These include an After School Program designed to further develop students’ social, physical and educational development, and the successful Youth Ambassadors Program, which encourages students in grades seven and up to become active in the community.
