It’s that time of year when the Town of Washington Grove announces plans for yet another exciting July full of fun and adventure! For decades, Washington Grove’s SITP program has been a unique, unparalleled camp for children to spend their summer in a healthy, wholesome, outdoor environment. Come play games, make arts and crafts, spend time at Maple Lake, star in a Grove-worthy entertainment production, and best of all, make new friends. It all happens in the bucolic setting of Washington Grove, known best as the Town within a Forest.
Summer In The Parks is a comprehensive program for children entering Kindergarten up to children entering 8th Grade by September 2019. Many of the camp participants are children that live within the Town limits, but each summer children from outside the Grove also attend and share the magic. When the Grove children become too old to attend the camp, they often continue as volunteers or counselors to help teach the younger generation what they’ve been lucky enough to experience in previous summers.
Summer In The Parks is staffed by paid directors and camp counselors, as well as volunteers. This year the camp will take place from July 1 to July 25 from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. Campout on July 26. Campers begin each day at McCathran Hall. All campers must have a completed registration form, waiver and payment mailed to address on the registration form. Registration forms are on the town website under Summer In The Parks. Please contact Emily Cavey with any questions, 240-838-1840.
