Eugene Rec Lottery

Eugene Rec has implemented a lottery system to make signing up for some of our programs more accessible and equitable. With a first-come, first-served system, spots in our most popular camps and classes are gone within minutes, requiring patrons to have a speedy internet connection and a flexible schedule.


Our lottery system is new and we’re rolling it out slowly so we can ensure things run smoothly and that the system is indeed accessible for all. As we continue to make tweaks and improvements, watch for the lottery system to expand.


Our goal is to create a system that streamlines the registration process, provides adequate time for patrons to consider and sign up for the lottery and provide everyone with an equal and fair opportunity to participate in our programs.


Preschool Lottery for 2024-25 School Year
