Starting Jan. 1, 2023, the Kentucky Department of Revenue requires service-based industries to impose a 6% sales tax. This applies to youth sports, camps, rentals, and instructional trainings. As a result, the fee includes a 6% sales tax that will be applied on all events, programs, rentals, and camps that meet that criterion under Lexington Parks & Recreation.
Parks & Recreation summer camps follow recommendations from the CDC, our local health department and the KY Healthy at Work Childcare Guidelines.
