Community Services to field program questions

By Bill Reichl and Audra Keenan Special contributors

Because we know that 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday does not always work for everyone, the staff at Scarborough Community Services is offering its first-ever summer registration and information night.

Stop by the Scarborough Middle School cafeteria where our program coordinators will be ready for summer day camp and summer specialty camp questions on Tuesday, April 1 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Not only will participants get a sneak peek at what we have to offer and how camps are run, but they’ll also get the opportunity to register for the programs on the spot and take advantage of some early registration discounts.

We’re even including a bonus. Everyone who registers for the eight-week summer day camp program at this event will be entered to win four weeks for free (to be issued as a refund). One entry per household, please.

Scarborough Community Services welcomes new and past campers to Summer Day Camp 2014. Camp is open to any child entering grades kindergarten through ninth in the fall. We are looking forward to providing a safe environment where everyone can make new friends, explore and develop new skills and simply have lots of fun.

Due to the ongoing Wentworth construction, the program is located in the high school for grades kindergarten to five students and in the middle school for grades six to nine students.

The locations are subject to change at any time due to the construction of the new Wentworth School.

Child care administrative office locations

Grades K to 5: 730-4170 office will be at Scarborough High School. Grades 6 to 9: 730-4848 office will be located at the middle school.

For those who cannot reach the summer rec camps, the Community Services office in the municipal building is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to assist with child care questions and can be reached via phone at 730-4150.

Check-in/check-out locations

Grades K to 5: Campers and parents must check in and check out daily in the temporary Summer Day Camp office located in the high school.

Grades 6 to 9: Campers and parents must check in and out daily in the middle school cafeteria

Youth programs

Our outdoor summer programs will run rain or shine. In case of a thunderstorm, a shelter location will be provided. However, there is not enough space to allow for all camps to have an active indoor rain location.

Make-ups will be addressed by adding time to remaining camp days or making it up on a Friday or Saturday.

Please plan to attend the registration and information night on April 1 or call the office at 730- 4150 with any questions about summer recreation programs and activities.

Bill Reichl is recreation manager and Audra Keenan is child care manager for Scarborough Community Services.
