Summer Youth Program

After meeting with parents and reviewing the current requirements for summer programs, we made the tough decision to CANCEL the 2020 summer youth program in the Roe Jan Park. The decision was not made lightly. We have been holding out hope that we could plan a fun-filled program and meet all the Health Department’s guidelines. It’s just not possible - and we won't put our campers and counselors at risk. Thanks to Joe Raco, our program director, who really tried to make it work.

Looking forward to Summer 2021!

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.
