Summer Playground Program 2020


Due to current events involving COVID, we are examining all aspects of our summer playground operations, following instruction from the Center for Disease Control, the Governor's stay at home orders, the town Emergency Operations Committee, and more. We are working hard to find the best way to offer our program while keeping the children of our town safe. Please be aware that summer playground for the 2020 season is not guaranteed for anyone. 

If you are currently registered and wish to remove your registration, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

Additionally, we ask that you hold off on all payments until contacted by a member of the department. If you have already paid and your child cannot attend for any reason, a refund will be issued. 

Thank you all. We hope we get to see you this summer.
