Information for Summer 2017
Dear Parent / Guardian,
The Sackets Harbor
Summer Recreation program welcomes children who have completed Kindergarten up
to children who have completed the 6th grade. There is a $25 registration fee for each child. The
program will be headquartered in the Multi-Purpose Room at Sackets Harbor
Central School and will run from Wednesday, July 5th through Friday, August
11th every weekday from 9:00 - 3:00.
Children who attend the
program should bring a backpack to hold all personal items, including a water
bottle and sunscreen. All items should be labeled with the child’s name.
Children must bring their own bag lunches and a snack. However, on
Mondays and Wednesdays lunch and snack are provided free of charge for all
Summer Rec students by Summer Food Program through the CAPC.

electronic devices are not permitted at Summer Rec. The ONLY exception is that
electronics are allowed for use on the bus on field trip Fridays. The

kids and staff go to Westcott Beach on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons,
weather permitting. Children are allowed to swim in shallow (no more than
“chest deep” water). Life jackets, goggles and swim toys are not
permitted by the park.
On Wednesday afternoons,
we go to Saturdays, Sundaes, & More for ice cream. The ice cream
costs $1 which will be collected by a staff member on Wednesday
mornings. The 1st and 2nd grade students will have story and craft time every Wednesday
afternoon at the Hay Memorial Library. The Library may also provide
educational events to 3rd – 7th grade throughout the summer.
