Summer in the Parks (SITP)
For decades, Washington Grove’s Summer in the Parks (SITP) program has provided children with the opportunity to spend a summer month playing games, making arts and crafts, spending time at Maple Lake, starring in a Grove-worthy entertainment production, and best of all, making new friends.
SITP is available to children entering kindergarten through 7th grade. Most participants are children who live within the town limits, but each summer children from outside the Grove also attend and share the magic. When the 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.
