Dear Guilderland Families-

The Guilderland Parks & Recreation Department is excited to offer exceptional programming that promotes fun, fitness and a wide variety of activities designed to enrich your child’s summer experience.  We thought it might be helpful to give you a brief summary of the activities we will be offering.  Check out our Early Spring camp offerings (Spring Break Fun-N-Games, Guilder'Run Youth Track and Field, and Yoga 4 Teens).  Please feel free to call the Parks and Recreations Department at (518) 456-3150, if you have any questions.

Summer of 2018

The Town runs a six-week, half-day adventure camp at Tawasentha Park each year for kids entering kindergarten through 8th grade. Each session runs for two weeks and you have the option to have your child take swim lessons as part of the camp at no additional charge. The Town provides busing within the Town of Guilderland for the six-week day camp (and for a.m. sports & enrichment camps) from June 25 - August 3, 2018.

FOR THE 2018 YEAR - We will again provide busing for children attending morning camps this summer from June 25th - August 3rd.  We are currently in negotiations with the Guilderland School District Transportation Department regarding busing for the summer.  All busing information for this summer will be posted on our website as soon as it is finalized.

Besides the Tawasentha 1/2 Day Camp program, residents will have over 45 sports camps and 50 enrichment camps from which to choose. The pool at Tawasentha Park will once again offer the Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program taught by certified lifeguards.

Registration for 2018 Summer Camps will begin on April 1, 2018. The 2018 Summer Brochures will be sent via backpack mail through the schools to Guilderland residents around the last week of March. Additional brochures can be picked up at Parks & Recreation, 181 Route 146 (across from Tawasentha Park), Town Hall and at your local libraries.  Registration Forms are available by clicking on Department Info.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL SPORTS AND ENRICHMENT CAMPS AND THE TAWASENTHA 1/2 DAY CAMP WILL BE CLOSED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 4th, 2018.  The schools will be closed and buses will not be available.

Families can enjoy our pocket parks, GPAC concert series on Thursday nights at 7:30pm, National Night Out (August 7, 2018), golf at Western Turnpike Golf Course and the use of over 5 miles of trails at Tawasentha Park, the Winter Recreation Area (adjacent to the park) and the Community Gardens. We hope you enjoy the summer of 2018!

If you have any questions or for more information, please call the Guilderland Parks & Recreation Department at (518) 456-3150. Thank you for your cooperation.
