The Barrington borough Summer Recreation Program — for children who will be entering grades 1 through 4 this fall — still has openings available as the July 2 start date approaches. And the borough just expanded the program’s flexibility by announcing it will accept children for single-day drop-offs at a charge of $20 for the day.
The program will run for six weeks, from July 2 through Aug. 10, at Avon School. It will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., but a variety of pricing options exist for parents who might want to drop children off after 9 a.m. and those who might want to pick up by noon or 3 p.m. There also is a discount for more than one child for a full week.
About 50 children took part in the program last year, according to Councilwoman Maureen Bergeron. Registration this year is approaching last year’s number, she said.
The camp will have a theme each week, including “Red, White and Bug Week” during Independence Day week, capped by a visit from the Bug Lady on July 6. Among the other weeks are expected be a beach week, a cooking week, an Olympics week, a carnival week and a talent show week.
