Fun. Stimulation. Skill building. You can count on this and so much more with any of the innovative programming available this summer sponsored by Hopkinton Parks and Recreation.
New this summer: extended hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) for Playground Groups, additional STEM-based activities to encourage and develop your child’s foundation of learning and growth, and a special treat for adults — cricket match play, which is becoming widely popular.
“We’ve got new, extended hours and lots of different programming this summer,” Parks and Rec director Jay Guelfi said. “Don’t miss out!”
Little Hillers, ages 5-7, can, of course, always join the Playground Groups at Center School for fun-filled weeks of arts and crafts, sports activities, games and a weekly visit from a variety of outside entertainers such as Animal Adventures, the High-Flying Frisbee Dogs, magicians, Top Secret Science and more. Each week ends with a pizza and popsicle party.
Junior Hillers, ages 8- 12, meet at Elmwood School for a week of Olympic events, field trips to Sandy Beach, Water Wizz amusement park and more. These popular sessions end with an Olympic-style ceremony, pizza and popsicles.
Sign up your active youngsters for tennis lessons to improve hand-eye coordination and develop skill sets in all the basic moves (forehand, backhand, overhead and serves), choose the co-ed Frozen Ropes baseball program with full-time professional instructors to improve game skills or try the ultimate Frisbee league, a great option for youth who want to be part of a team, learn new skills and have fun.
Young athletes looking to improve skills will benefit from any of the sports clinics – boys or girls basketball, lacrosse, field hockey, football and track and field.
The children’s social skills workshops provide youngsters opportunities to feel self-reliant and confident in any social situation by training through interactive lessons taught by a certified etiquette consultant.
Cooking classes. Hands-on science classes. Pediatric CPR and first aid. There are so many options for personal growth, fun and learning.
