Pequosette Summer Program Description
The Watertown Recreation Department is offering the Pequossette Summer Program to children who are entering grades one through eight in September 2022.
The program consists of seven individual weeks from June 27 through August 12, 2022, at the Hosmer School, 1 Concord Road in Watertown. The program will operate Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 2:30 pm, except for Week 2 which will run Tuesday, July 5th through Friday, July 8th. 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, with a playground area, basketball court, and turf play area, has allowed the Recreation Department the opportunity to offer a wide range of activities to entertain the children. Basketball, hockey, wiffleball, four square, and street hockey are just some of the
sport activities offered for the children. The playground area with swings, slides, and other amenities challenges the physical and imaginative skills of the children. There are also indoor activities, such as assemblies, arts & crafts, games, movies, music, talent shows, sports, and more.
Additionally, campers will go to the Dealtry Pool, located about one and one-half miles from the Hosmer School, or utilize the sprinkler pads at Arsenal and Filippello parks, for swimming or cooling off.
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. 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.
Kindergarten Summer Program Description
The Kindergarten Summer Program will be conducted in conjunction with the Pequossette Summer Program. The program runs seven individual weeks from June 27 through August 12, 2022, and offers the same amenities as the Pequossette Program, but in a smaller group setting and with a separate time structure. This program will operate Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 2:30 pm. We also offer an early drop off and extended day options, but space is limited
to 20 children per week. For this Kindergarten Summer Program, children must be entering kindergarten in September 2022.
