Southern End Community Association (SECA)
Our mission is to create recreational opportunities for local residents of Southern Lancaster County by providing high value programs for children and adults. Your gifts allow us to offer these opportunities locally while also helping us keep the activities fees minimal and widely available to all families. Our organization is the center of the summer community with our outdoor pool and community park. We offer swim lessons, water aerobics, a swim team, and Lifeguard courses at the pool. While also hosting many summer camps (Day, Art, Tennis, Lacrosse, & more), sports leagues, youth sports and pre-school programs, exercise, and American Red Cross Training Classes.
We provide year round recreational activities for all ages. We maintain a 15-acre community park including: fishing pond, playground & kids area, outdoor pool, inline hockey rink, skateboard & freestyle bike park, basketball, beach volleyball & pickleball courts. Additionally, camps, trips, leagues, exercise, and educational classes.
Rick Kerns become director at SECA in the Spring of 2019. He is a graduate of York college with a degree in Sports Management and minor in Human Resource Management. Rick spent the first decade of his career working with children's recreational programs. Rick came to SECA from The Hotel Hershey, where he spent four years as director of recreation. He has brought many new ideas to SECA. His networking with local businesses and non-profits have helped to strengthen our community. His creative, out-of-the box thinking allowed him to plan and organize novel programs and events while considering the health, wellness and safety of all during these unprecedented times. He is an avid runner and can be easily recognized as the tall, bearded gentleman, wearing shorts, year round, at SECA! Rick and his wife reside in York county with their three young children.
