Milford Parks and Recreation is accepting registration for its Summer Fun Club which will begin June 27 and run until August 5 from 8:30 AM until 2:30 PM. There are three age groups which include ages 6 and 7, ages 8 and 9 as well as ages 10 and 11.
“We are accepting 36 participants with 12 in each age group,” Doreen Wrightsman, Administrative Assistant, said. “The camp will be held at Mispillon Elementary School Mondays through Thursdays and at the Milford Parks and Recreation office on Fridays.”
The cost for Summer Fun Club is $150 per week per child which includes field trips. The first week, the cost is only $125 as it is only a four day week. Breakfast and lunch are provided Monday through Thursday by Milford School District, but parents should pack lunch on Friday. There is no refrigeration so Wrightsman explained parents should pack lunch in an insulated lunch bag.
“We have events planned each day so parents should check the calendar of events each day so their child is dressed appropriately,” Wrightsman said. “Please send them in tennis shoes and no open toed shoes as this is a safety hazard.”
Parents should be sure their child has sunscreen on when they head to Summer Camp as there will be outdoor activities every day. Because there are waterpark trips, children must be able to swim. Because Milford Parks and Recreation is not responsible for lost or stolen items, Wrightsman stated that children should not bring games, phones, toys or electronic gadgets.
“Our Summer Fun Club will provide participants the opportunity to do fun projects, play games and go on awesome adventures,” Wrightsman said. “After registering, please print out your receipt. We will send you the required liability and registration form via email. Please fill out, print and return to our office at 207 Franklin Street. You may also email the form to [email protected].”
