Children’s Summer Recreation Program
The Village Parks and Recreation Commission is pleased to offer our extremely popular Children’s Summer Recreation Program to be held at Memorial Park. Children between the ages of 6 through 12 will be treated to hours of fun and enjoyment this summer. And, the large shelter at Memorial Park provides a sun-free setting for games and entertainment. This Program will be held on Monday through Thursday for five weeks. Due to the July 4th federal holiday, the program this year will begin on Monday, July 8th and run through Thursday, August 8th.
Children are divided into two age specific sessions. Children ages 6 – 8 will attend the morning session from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Youth between the ages of 9 – 12 will attend the afternoon session from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM. All program activities will be geared to the appropriate age groups.
The Park Field Office will be closed for lunch between the hours of 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm and there is no supervision available during that time period.
Registration will be held on the 1st floor of Village Hall on Wednesday, June 19th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Please bring a completed registration application for each child being registered, along with proof of Village residency (tax bill, utility bill, etc.) A 1 inch by 1.5 inch photo of your child is required and will be used to create a photo ID card. If you have more than one child to register, blank application forms can be obtained at the Village Clerk’s Office or on registration day. Click here
