Recreation Summer Daycation Program - 2021 (Grades K-8)
Reading Recreation is excited to be offering our 2021 Summer Daycation! Recreation Summer Daycation is being offered for children entering grades K-8th. The ratio for participants to counselor will be 10:1.
The Summer Daycation Program will look a little different than in years past. Children will be divided into cohorts of 25 (subject to change per state recreational programming guidelines) and rotate to outdoor and indoor areas at Coolidge Middle School each week. The total number of children accepted will also be contingent upon guidelines and the space available to us. We plan to take no more than 75 children at this time.
This Summer will feature a variety of activities in sports & games, cooperative games, science & nature and arts & crafts. There will be no pool time at the YMCA. Each child will be asked to bring 2 snacks and a non-refrigerated lunch. .
Our Daycation Program will be overseen by two seasoned Program Supervisors who have been working at our summer program for the past 10+ years as well as a majority of returning Summer Counselors. The Recreation Administrator and Program Coordinator will also be frequently monitoring the program. Group requests will NOT be granted this year.
We have scheduled special events for each week of Summer Daycation!!!
