Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that registration for the 2018 Summer Recreation Program is now open for children ages 4 – 12. The program runs from Monday, July 2nd through Friday, August 10th. This affordable summer recreation program includes exciting activities such as sports, arts and crafts, a scavenger hunt, sprinkler party, pizza party, Carnival Day and Crazy Hat Day. Children may also sign up for field trips to locations such as Adventureland, Splish Splash, a Day at the Movies and more (off-site activities depend on age and parental permission and require an additional fee).
The program is separated into the following age categories: early childhood (Ages 4, 5 and 6); juniors (7-8); intermediate (9-10); and seniors (11-12). While the Summer Recreation Program offers a full day of activities for your child, it is broken up into a morning session (9:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.) and an afternoon session (12:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.). All children must be picked up for the lunch hour as there is no supervision during that time. The Summer Recreation Program operates in the following six parks: Marjorie R. Post Community Park in Massapequa; Ellsworth W. Allen Town Park in Farmingdale; Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park in Plainview; Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park and Beach in Oyster Bay; Syosset-Woodbury Community Park in Woodbury; and Harry Tappen Beach in Glenwood Landing.
The program cost is $400 per child and $200 for each additional child in the same immediate family. The last day to register for the Summer Recreation Program is June 15, 2018, based on availability. Those interested in registering may contact the Recreation office at (516) 797-4125, extension 1, to request an application. Completed applications may be brought in person or mailed to the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department, Attn: Summer Recreation, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa, New York 11758. Completed applications must include a check or money order payable to the “Town of Oyster Bay” (no cash will be accepted) in the appropriate amount, as well as a copy of the child or children’s birth certificate(s) and a copy of the family’s most recent tax or utility bill.
