Howard County Winter Classes and Activties

One of the great things about Howard County is the wealth of education, fitness and entertainment activities available to residents. Three major catalogs for winter classes and activities arrived over the past week or so. If you haven't received them, here's how to track them down, along with deadlines for registration. Have a look and I'll bet you'll find a few classes that make sense for you.

The Columbia Association Activities Guide for Winter/Spring 2009 offers a host of kids and adult fitness and indoor activities. This is also the main guide to all of Columbia's sport facilities, including its three gyms, four indoor pools, ice skating, tennis, racquetball and more. The Guide also includes discount coupons to a number of the facilities. Registration for classes varies, but all can be reserved now either by phone or via the web site.

Howard Community College's Continuing Education department has published its Winter 2009 Noncredit Classes catalog which includes hundreds of informative and entertaining single day or multi-day classes. There are business, computer & information technology, health care, English, lifestyle & leisure classes and more. The classes are usually very reasonably priced and are held at facilities throughout the county from January through March. Registration is open now.

Howard County Recreation and Parks has published its Winter 2009 Program Guide with several hundred more fitness classes and other activities for kids, adults and seniors. Like HCC's, some classes meet once but many are multi-week and are very reasonably priced. Registration is open now.
