Forest River Adventure Day Program
Salem Park, Recreation and Community Services will be running a day program for children age 6-12 at Forest River. Join us as we participate in crafts, exploration, science and nature, sports and games, special guests, water play and lots more! Age appropriate activities are planned on a daily basis. We have an 8 to 1 participant to staff ratio to ensure a fun, safe environment for your child. Children should bring a water bottle and snacks each day. This year we are partnering with Bass River Inc. for the summer meals lunch program. Bass River will be making providing lunches each day for our participants. Lunch forms will be emailed to parents. Children may choose to bring their own lunch as well.
This summer, the city pool will be closed for renovations. Therefore, we will be adding additional water play games to our schedule, as well as visits to the Splash Pad at the Mary Jane Lee Playground. The city will also be staffing some local beaches with lifeguards this summer, so we will be scheduling some beach trips. In order for your child to swim at the beach with us, they must pass a swim test or they will need to wear a life jacket. Swim tests will be arranged through the Salem YMCA and parents will be notified of when the testing will be done.
In partnership with Sail Salem this summer, our Forest River groups will be traveling to Winter Island each Thursday afternoon for a sailboat excursion. Trained instructors from Sail Salem will take children and staff out for a ride. All children will be wearing life jackets which will be provided by Sail Salem. We are asking parents to pick up their child at 4:00pm at Winter Island on Thursdays. Additional information will be forwarded to parents with all the necessary registration papers.
