Summer recreation program for kids set

GLOVERSVILLE — The city has announced a free half-day Summer Recreation Program for city children ages 5 to 12 at Littauer Field on Union Street.

Programming offered will include sports clinics, educational outdoor games, arts and crafts including tie-dye, creating bird houses, canvas paintings, kindness rock projects, gardening and much more. Special guests will also provide additional activities and will include programming from The Glove Theater, the police, fire, public works departments, Mayor Vince DeSantis, the public library, Cancer Prevention in Action, Micropolis Development Group and many more.

“This program will be much more than physical activity, it will create a fun environment for children to learn, grow, and socialize after over a year of being closed off from the outside world,” said City Clerk Jenni Mazur in a news release. “This will be an enriching program with a wide variety of activities to help create a spark and allow our children to discover a new skill or passion.”

Registration will close on Friday.

Those interested in applying should contact Mazur at [email protected] or (518) 773-4542.
