The Carmacks Recreation Centre is at the east end of River Drive between the nursing station and visitor centre, and is a community focal point for youth.
There is a youth drop-in daily with computer access, video games, table games and other activities, often funded by Yukon grant programs.
The gymnasium is host to adult floor hockey and other sports, and there is an attached curling rink.
TheRec. Centre has a full set of fitness equipment, including weights and treadmills. The Sweetheart Bonspiel is held around Valentine’s Day and Winterlude is in early March.
Summer sees the opening of the swimming pool, usually from the Victoria Day weekend in May to the last week of August.
A training site for the Carmacks Kings swim club, the pool also offers family/kids lessons and public swims.
Our natural outdoors offers snowmobiling and all terrain vehicle adventures, fishing and some spectacular hiking. In summer, Coal Mine Lake is a short hike from town and well worth the effort.
The ridge walk trail hosts an inter-school competition each spring, and Carmacks is a huge contributor, per capita, to the Terry Fox Run each year.
