The Gardiner Summer Recreation program is in full swing, providing lots of seasonal fun for local campers between the ages of 5 and 13. The program began on July 6th and runs through August 14th every weekday from 9 am to 3 pm. Home Base is Majestic Park. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the program at the park includes Arts & Crafts, nature study, sports, group games, and visits to the Gardiner Library where younger campers work with Head Counselor Katie Powell and the older kids work with Children’s Librarian Nicole Lane. Tuesdays and Thursdays are spent at the Ulster County Pool, and each Friday is Field Trip Day. This year, trips are planned for bowling, roller-skating, a visit to Kelder’s Farm, Minnewaska, the Ulster County Fair, and the season finale (and perennial favorite), Splash Down Water Park! Co-directors Frank LaRonca and Juli Weisz report that registration filled up quickly this year and recommend that all interested families be on the lookout next April for the 2010 season sign-up dates.
