TICONDEROGA — The re-established summer youth program began July 8 at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School and will continue until Friday, Aug. 2.
The program provides free breakfast, lunch and a snack each day for program participants. In addition, Ticonderoga qualifies as an open site which means that all children ages 18 and younger can receive free breakfasts and lunches at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School cafeteria, even if they are not enrolled in the summer program.
Breakfast is served 7:15 to 8:15 a.m. and lunch is from 11:15 a.m. to noon. This meal service will be available Monday to Friday through Aug. 16, which is two weeks beyond when the summer youth program ends. Transportation to and from the school is not provided.
The summer program offers swimming at the Ticonderoga Beach, sports, arts and crafts, games, bowling, the Arts Trek program, and more.
The program starts at 7:30 a.m. Monday to Friday and ends at 2:30 p.m. each day. As in the past, the program is supervised by Angie MacAlpine, the program director, and her team of counselors.
The fee for the summer program is $10 a day, a child. There is a scholarship program available for lower income families which reduces the cost for the summer program to $2 a day and still has a small amount of funding available. These scholarships are available to qualifying students on a first-come, fist-served basis.
Registration forms for the summer program and applications for the scholarship program are available at the town clerk’s office at the Community Building.
