Summer Fun At Blue Ridge

Blue Ridge Recreation, Inc. is conducting the 21st year of Summer Adventures at the Blue Ridge School. The program offers sports and arts and crafts activities for third through eighth graders of the Blue Ridge School District. Buses, on limited routes, bring the children to school three days a week for four weeks. There is no charge to the children to attend. Funding is provided by donations from the communities, including businesses, municipalities, service groups, and the school district. For the third year, the cafeteria, through state and federal grant monies, provides lunches for all kids that attend.

The children enjoy participating in sports such as soccer, baseball, volleyball and basketball, as well as creating various objects in crafts classes. As in prior years, the program will culminate with a pizza party at the New Milford pool - a much anticipated event.
