Dunkirk announces summer day camp information

The City of Dunkirk Youth Bureau and Recreation Office will again be sponsoring the Summer Better Than Others Day Camp at Camp Gross for youth beginning at 5 years old and who have finished kindergarten through 11 years of age.

The camp offers recreational, athletic and educational experiences for children. Located in the beautiful confines of Camp Gross in Cassadaga, this summer recreational day camp features daily activities such as arts and crafts, games, lifeguard-supervised fishing and swimming, theatre and much more.

The maximum youth to staff ratio is 6:1, with the ration being significantly lower for waterfront activities.

Children will be picked up and dropped off at five designated locations in Dunkirk every morning and afternoon.

Two staff counselors will be on the bus daily and will be taking an attendance check at each stop. Bus locations will be made available upon registration.

Lunches will be provided by the Summer Feeding Program.

The cost for one week of camp for City of Dunkirk residents is $40 per child with every additional child in the family at $30 per child.

For children living outside of the City of Dunkirk, fees will be $50 per child and $35 for each additional child.

For junior counselors (sixth grade and up), the cost will be $20 per session.

Parents may sign children up for a maximum of two weeks.

Camp weeks that are available are:

Week One: July 8-12

Week Two: July 15-19

Week Three: July 22-26

Week Four: July 29-Aug. 2

Week Five: Aug. 5-9

Registration will only be accepted at the Dunkirk Youth Bureau/Recrea-tion office located in the Stearns Building (next to City Hall) on the second floor between 12:30 and 4:30 p.m. weekdays beginning June 17 for Dunkirk residents and June 24 for non-Dunkirk residents.
