The Watertown Recreation Department is offering the Pequossette Summer Program to children who are entering grades 1 through 8 in the fall of 2017.

The program consists of eight individual weeks from June 27 through August 18, 2017 at the Hosmer School at 1 Concord Road in Watertown. The program will operate Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 2:30 pm, except for the first 2 weeks. We offer an early drop off from 7:30 am to 8:45 am and an extended day program from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

The Hosmer School and O’Connell Playground, which includes a large field space, playground area, basketball court, tennis court and a multi-purpose court, afford the Recreation Department the opportunity to offer a wide range of activities to entertain the children. Basketball, softball, rag ball, kickball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and street hockey are just some of the sport activities offered for the children. There is also a play area with swings, slides, and other amenities to challenge the physical and imaginative skills of the children. The program will provide space for indoor activities, such as assemblies, arts & crafts, drama, games, lunch, movies, music, talent shows, sports, and more.

The Dealtry Pool is located 1 mile from the Hosmer School and is used for swimming and cooling off on hot summer days for most campers. The Boys and Girls Club will also be utilized as a regular facility for the Pequossette Program.

The children’s safety and welfare are always the top priority for our staff. The program will be under the direction of Mr. Brian Donato, Program Director. Supporting Mr. Donato is a qualified staff of educators, consisting of assistant directors, senior and junior counselors, and specialists.

Children can bring a lunch or purchase one at the snack shack. Milk is offered to all youngsters on a daily basis. Children should wear comfortable clothing and sneakers to this program.

Children should also bring a towel, sunscreen, and bathing suit with them on the days they travel to the pool. Sunscreen will be available to youngsters who request it. For special events, youngsters will be given a list of the items they should bring with them to those programs. A calendar of events will be supplied for all participants.
