2021:  We are planning to hold a smaller version of our Playgrounds program at Horne Street in 2021.  We will be accepting 30 kids which will be split between 2 groups in compliance with current state guidelines.  Registration will begin April 12th and will be done online.  

Instructions for on-line registration - it's easier if you register your account in advance of the sign-up window!

This program is for Dover residents ages 6-12 (as of 6/1/21). This 7-week program runs from June 28th (TENTATIVE) - August 13th (TENTATIVE); Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Playgrounds counselors provide scheduled activities at the park (Horne Street), and participants are able to go swimming, play games, sports, and arts & crafts. Weekly trips are TBD due to Covid restrictions. 

Playgrounds is a weather-dependent program. Morning and/or afternoon playground programs will not be held in inclement weather. While we do our best to hold the program, there are times that Mother Nature does not allow that to happen.  If you provide an email address on your registration form, you will be notified regarding all day cancellations via email.  Otherwise, call us at 516-6401.

Fee: $350 per child (for the entire 7-weeks!) if payment is made before May 31st. After June 1st, the cost is $400 (if spots are available).
