Are you looking for a fun way for your child to spend their summer days? Join us at this year at our Summer Adventure program as we play, explore, and create our own adventures. Your child can be a superhero, nature explorer, artist, builder, athlete, and so much more! Each day will include arts and crafts, sports, plenty of outdoor fun including some water play (sprinklers/water games) based upon scheduled activities for that week. Each week will be full of activities based on different weekly themes (schedule below) with age appropriate activities based upon each child’s grade/group. Our caring, devoted staff provide a safe and engaging experience for all participants. Group size is limited to 12 children, and our child-to-counselor ratio is 6:1. Parents may register and complete enrollment forms online.
The Summer Adventures program is being offered in accordance with the Minimum Requirements for Health and Safety by the Massachusetts Child and Youth Serving Programs Reopening Approach. Establishing and maintaining a safe and healthy summer program experience remains our top priority. All registered children, parents, and staff must follow the recommended safety guidelines, including physical distancing, wearing cloth face coverings, frequent hand-washing, and health screenings. We ask that parents determine if their child can comply with these guidelines with minimal assistance before registering. All parents will receive a detailed “Parent Guide” prior to the start of their scheduled week in which their child is attending.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What time does the Full-Day Program begin and end each day?
The full-day program begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm daily. Please make sure you check your child in each day with the camp director, as well as check them out.
Will the children be indoors or outdoors throughout the day?
Most of our activities will take place outdoors including snack and lunch. Staff will help children refill water bottles and remind them to re-apply sunscreen, and take breaks in the shade where.
Will the children be going to the Beach and Tennis Courts this year for lessons?
This year there will be no trips to the tennis courts/or Borrggaard Beach, we will look to bring in outside vendors/activities to entertain the kids when possible.
What should my child bring each day?
Children should arrive each day wearing sneakers, active clothing, and sunscreen. They should bring a backpack carrying a water bottle, snack, lunch, bathing suit (might be water play) towel, additional sunscreen, and change of clothes. The WRSAP is a nut-free program so children are not allowed to eat any food containing peanuts or tree nuts. We also ask that children leave all toys, games, and valuables at home. Winchester Recreation is not responsible for any lost goods.
Will you have early drop off/extended day?
There will be no early drop/off extended day option’s this year as we cannot mix groups/cohorts.
