The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS - By Denise Larive

Kids ages 5 to 12 can ex­pe­ri­ence this sum­mer the joys of an eightweek sum­mer play­ground pro­gram at Amity Com­mu­nity Park, Weaver­town Road.

The 2018 pro­gram will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. from June 18 to Aug. 10.

It is co­or­di­nated by the Amity Town­ship Parks and Recre­ation Board, and mod­eled af­ter the eight-week themed pro­gram they ran about 15 years ago at Lake Drive Park.

Town­ship Man­ager Troy Binga­man said the town­ship has in­ter­viewed and will se­lect the ap­pro­pri­ate num­ber of camp coun­selors/lead­ers to su­per­vise and run the var­i­ous pro­grams.

Daily ac­tiv­i­ties will once again in­clude themed crafts, tie-dy­ing, wa­ter games, kick­ball, snacks, and free time on the play­ground.

Some new fea­tures will be fine mo­tor skills and agility ac­tiv­i­ties, themed games and ac­tiv­i­ties that are de­vel­op­men­tally ap­pro­pri­ate to growth, or­ga­nized sports games for older chil­dren such as Four Square, and age ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tiv­i­ties with les­son plans.

Pro­gram fees for town­ship res­i­dents are $50 per week for the first child and $45 for each ad­di­tional child.

Non-res­i­dent fees are $65 per week and $60 per ad­di­tional child.
