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. The large shelter at Memorial Park provides a sun-free setting for games and entertainment.

The Program will run Monday through Thursday for five weeks beginning on Monday, July 7 through Thursday, August 7.   Children will be 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 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 no supervision will be available during that period.

Registration will be held at Village Hall on Tuesday, June 24 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.   Please bring a completed application for each child along with proof of residency (tax bill, utility bill, etc.)  A 1 inch by 1.5 inch photo of your child is also required.  If you have more than one child to register, blank application forms will be available on the day of registration.  This program is provided free of charge to Village residents.  Non-village residents in the 11040 zip code are eligible, pending availability, with a $100 registration fee per child. 

The Village Parks and Recreation Commission is confident that this Program will provide your children with some great summer entertainment and encourage you to have your children participate.
