Now that snow has finally come to the region, Snow Day Camp has been reopened again for other families. Snow Day Camp is for families with elementary children. Snow Day Camp is designed to provide safe and supportive daycare to children aged 5 to 10 on those days school is canceled because of snow.
The camp will run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the First Universalist Church in Rockland at 345 Broadway. Breakfast, lunch and two snacks will be served. Most Snow Day Camp staffers are volunteers. They will direct and supervise campers in organized activities such as arts & crafts, science experiments, meal and snack preparation, movie screening and board games.
The cost is $15.00 per child per snow day. A deposit of $15.00 per child is required to reserve a space. This fee will be returned if no snow day is scheduled. Registration is limited to 30 children on a first come, first served basis. You must register, including your deposit, prior to a snow day. For more information or to request a registration form, call (207) 370-7887 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snow Day Camp registrations are now being accepted for families in RSU#13 with elementary children. The camp was conceived after last winter, when members of the First Universalist Church in Rockland noticed families struggling to find affordable childcare on days when school was cancelled. Carney Doucette, Director of Religious Exploration, notes, “We saw this need, and knew we could address it with our facility. We have a team of qualified adults willing to help on snowy days to provide an affordable, quality experience for children.”
