Summer Youth Program

Governor Cuomo is not making a decision about summer programs until the end of May. Given that kids are not going back to school this spring, summer programs are critical for kids and parents. Once State requirements have been established, we hope that Hillsdale will be able to work with the County Department of Health to design a safe – and fun – summer program directed by Taconic Hills educator Joe Raco.
The popular program always takes advantage of its unique location in the beautiful Roeliff Jansen Park with trails, fields, wetlands, two large open barns, and a working community garden. Focused on nature and the great outdoors, applications will be posted on the page below if it can be scheduled.

Quick Facts from 2019 – to be updated for 2020:
