AVON — Recreation Director Jennifer Mayo and the Avon Park and Recreation Board of Commissioners are pleased to announce the details of the Town’s 2021 summer program.
The program will run from June 28 to Aug. 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The cost is $200 per child with a $400 family cap, and is open for Avon residents and school choice families. The program is open for children who will be in first grade or higher starting next school year.
The summer program will feature a variety of activities, including sports and games, arts and crafts and special visitors.
New this year, participants can sign up for the summer program online by visiting the town’s payment website here. Participants may pay by electronic check or by credit card. Due to COVID-19 restrictions there will not be the typical in-person registration nights for the program, but participants may additionally drop applications off at Town Hall in the secure drop-box, or mail them to the Recreation Department.
If a family cannot afford the cost of the program, they may contact the Recreation department to discuss options.
Last year’s summer program was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a difficult decision for the Park and Recreation Board of Commissioners, but one that was ultimately made for the health and safety of Avon residents. All applicable state and local guidelines will be followed for this year’s program.
“We are very excited to be offering the summer program again this year, and look forward to providing Avon children with the opportunity to play and socialize with their friends, which is something so many missed out on last summer,” Director Mayo said. “We know so much more than we did at this time last year, and are confident that we can provide families with a safe environment to send their children.”
