Sandy Pines Recreation Staff

The Sandy Pines Recreation Team operates our Recreation Station, Happy Shack Snack Stand, Game Room, Pools, Ropes Course, and our all big summer activities, holiday tournaments, events. Most of our Recreation Staff are high school and college students. This is why we typically open for Memorial Weekend, then close the Pools and Ropes Course until school is out and then reopen for the summer season. This is also why we close the Pools and Ropes Course near the end of August when schools starts again but then open for the last hurrah on Labor Day Weekend.
