SUMMER RECREATION PROGRAM:
The Town of East Bloomfield offers a Summer Recreation Program for childen entering UPK through 7th Grade. The program has assigned groups according to the grade a child is entering in the fall. Regular activity stations for the program include games and sports, dance and drama, art-n-crafts, science, playground and much more. In addition, special events occur throughout the camp, such as visiting entertainment and theme days. All activities are well planned and supervised by dedicated and attentive counselors and volunteers. The program focuses on teambuilding and cooperative fun! Incoming 6th and 7th graders have the opportunity to do a little of everything. They attend some stations while at the same time have independent activities all to themselves. They also have the opportunity to help our younger groups of campers each week.
The program offers two full day trips to Onanda State Park in Canandaigua. These are fun days of recreational swimming, outdoor play, nature activities an classic beach games. The campers have time to use the full facilities and eat lunch there. The program also offers other field trips, which are set each year by the Director, for an additional fee.
Program t-shirts are provided to all campers in the program. The campers are required to wear the t-shirts for all field trips and other off site trips.
Students entering 8th grade along with any student who is not yet 17 years old have the opportunity to volunteer. Volunteer applications are available when registration is open to Town residents.
Students 16 years old and older can work as Counselors for the program. Counselors are interviewed and chosen by the Director and Assistant Director.
The Camp Director is Jeff Daley, who has been the Summer Recreation Director since 2003. The Assistant Director, who provides support to the Director, is veteran staff member, Melanie Weber. Also on staff is certified Registered Nurse, Jill Cross, who is available at camp at all times.
