Town of Maine Summer Recreation July 7th – August 8th, 2014

 

We are getting ready for another great year of summer recreation in the Town of Maine Park. The program is for grades Primary Sequence (completed EK) to Middle School. The town has continued to support this program but substantial budget cuts made for a significant increase in fees this year. The new fees are as follows:

 

  • Full Day: $35.00 per week per child, with a weekly family maximum of $80.00 (If you register your child(ren) for all 5 weeks at full price/full day in advance, you are entitled to the 5th week for free!)
  • Half Day: $20.00 per week, per child. Children must be picked up by noon


We are aware that this is a significant increase, and we do have financial assistance for those families in need. Should you need assistance, please include with your registration form(s) a copy of any document proving your financial need (DSS verification of any service, free or reduced lunch, etc.). You may also speak with Jim Tokos regarding financial assistance.

 

  • The approved reduced fee is $10 per week, per child


These changes have created a great need for pre-registration this year. Registration at the park on July 7th or later may not ensure your child’s spot. We strongly recommend registering before the deadline!

 

Our program begins at 9:00 am, and once students are signed in for the first time, they will sign themselves in with their specific counselor. There is a “quiet” early drop off at 8:00 am. Morning sessions end at 12:00 pm and include games, activities, and crafts at the Town Park. (Half day students must be picked up by 12:00 pm.)

 

Afternoons are spent at Greenwood Park. Participants can swim under the supervision of our counselors and Greenwood Park lifeguards, or they can hike and play games. We have busses that will transport the children to and from Greenwood. These busses will return to the Town of Maine Park at 2:30 pm. Everyone needs to be picked up by 2:45 pm.

 

FYI:

 

  • Parents or guardians must sign the participants out.
  • To ensure the children’s safety, photographs of each participant will be taken.
  • If your child requires a 1 on 1 aide during the school year, please contact us in advance. • Please ensure that your child has food and drink for the day.
  • All participants in grades 7 and up will be in the “M I T” (Main-e-acs In Training) program. They will be required to do one hour of community service for each day they attend. This community service will take place during the program hours.

Registration forms are available at Town Hall.  Registration and payments are due no later than Friday, May 30th, 2014. Checks should be made out to the “Town of Maine.” Forms and payments can be placed in the Maine Memorial PTA mailbox. Recreation Committee members are available to answer your questions: Cara Hauer 206-7607, Karen Meschter 785-9103 or Jim Tokos 862-1520.
