A message from Director of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Bristol, Warren Rensehausen (below left), noted that the Summer Camp registration has increased to close to 450 children this year, up 10%. The Program runs from June 21 to August 4th. The fee for the Summer Program ($300 per child) includes a T shirt, bussing from 5 locations, if needed, and lunch daily. In addition, the Program offers scholarships for families who would have difficulty paying the $300 fee. They were able to cover 15 families through grants and donations, but 3 more families came forward asking for help that the Program could not cover. Bristol Rotary offered to help and donated the last $900 needed to provide for everyone. Let’s give all our kids a great summer.
