51st Annual Summer Camp Program
The Town of Wheatland’s 51st annual Summer Day Camp Program for kids will begin on Monday June 24th and will be held for six weeks ending on Friday August 2nd. The Summer Day Camp Program is held at Johnson Park in Scottsville, New York and is for children ages 4 through 13. Summer Day Camp begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 1:00 PM (with additional before care and after care programs offered).
The counselor to camper ratio is 1:8 for K – 2nd and 1:10 for 3rd – 8th, which allows for the counselors to interact with all of the campers as well as ensure the safety of each camper. Throughout the six weeks of the program, campers will get to participate in many activities including:
make numerous crafts,
play countless games of soccer, kickball, and other sports,
participate in the annual talent show,
make tie-dye shirts,
dress up for camp theme days, and so much more!
Each day campers play games and participate in activities with children in their age group, make crafts that align with the weekly theme as well as play on the playground equipment at the park.
There are a lot of activities that campers get to participate in through Summer Camp outside of Johnson Park. Each week at camp, we attend at least one field trip. This year some of the field trips include: Jade Pottery, the Seneca Park Zoo, Raider Lanes Bowling, a Red Wings baseball game as well as an end of summer trip to Seabreeze. On one day each week, we will walk to the Scottsville Free Library in order to have a book read aloud to us and be able to rent books. We also walk to the Wheatland Senior Center for some inter-generational activities including bingo and painting – a favorite activity for both the campers and the seniors.
We look forward to another fun summer, for more information and to register visit the Town of Wheatland Website or contact Shanna Fraser, Recreation Coordinator, Town of Wheatland Office: (585) 889-1553 x103.
