1. 2022 Summer Program RSU9

  • How the Camp Will Run:

    • The 21st Century Kids of FRANKLIN will provide an in-person summer camp opportunity to campers at Kineowatha Park. It is imperative that campers are able to adhere to the strict guidelines we are puting in place that make this summer camp possible. Campers will be evaluated for selection into the program based upon a number of factors, including behavior. Parents will be notified within 3-5 business days, and no later than June 15th whether or not their child has been selected for the program.

    • Campers will have to be dropped off and picked up by designated adults at Kineowatha Park. The camp will run from June 20th to August 11th Monday through Thursday from 8:30am-4:30pm. The week of July 4th, the program will be closed on Monday and will run Tuesday 5th-Friday 8th.

    Students who attend RSU9 Summer School are welcome to join us after their morning academics.

    The summer program will provide fun, active, and engaging outdoor and indoor activities (when necessary) designed to maximize students' physical activity and to keep their brains from slipping into the summer slide.

    • Parents will be required to stay in their vehicles for drop off and pick up. Staff will chaperone campers to and from their vehicle.

    • Face masks and coverings may be worn by staff and campers in any situation if they so choose to, besides in the water.

    • Camper and staff member belongings will be separated from others’ and in individually labeled containers. All personal items brought to camp must be kept to a minimum and must be labeled with the owner’s name. Campers will only be allowed to bring 1 bag with a bathing suit, towel, a water bottle, and a change of clothing to program. Absolutely no toys (land or water) or electronics will be allowed.

    • Lunches will be provided by the Summer Feeding Program at Kineowatha Park.

    • Parents may send students with snacks to enjoy throughout the day.

    • Attendance Requirement: If your camper is accepted into the program and does not attend within the first week of programming, they will be removed from the program.
