A Chattanooga Family’s Guide to June 2022

Now that June has arrived with its warm temperatures, summertime is in full swing in Chattanooga! Community pools have opened their gates, summer camps have started, and hopefully, your children are sleeping in! 

Chattanooga has plenty to offer in the month of June to keep you and your family busy. Checkout the Chattanooga Public Library’s schedule for daily events, hit up a Lookouts, Chattanooga Football Club, or Chattanooga Red Wolves game, or have some fun out on the water with Outshine Adventures.

The Hunter Art Museum has a lot to offer this month as well! Take a look at our list of local summer camps and vacation bible school locations. If you need to beat the heat, take a look at our local splash pads and swimming holes!
