Children navigate the waters of Lake George during a 2012 kayaking session offered though the Bolton Recreation Department’s 'Adventure Wednesdays' series. The town agency annually offers dozens of special events, concerts, performances, field trips, sports lessons, plus fitness and craft instruction sessions as well as week-long camps focusing on soccer, basketball, dancing and the theater arts.
BOLTON LANDING While town recreation programs in the region routinely consist of only swimming and a few sports games for youth, the town of Bolton is offering far more.
Through their recreation department, Bolton government offers a full range of special events, camps and programs for all ages that are intended to build life skills, boost wellness and spark people’s imaginations — while providing a lot of fun.
Almost all the activities and programs are offered for visitors and residents of nearby communities, as well as Bolton folks.
In the upcoming weeks, these activities hit high gear with lots of special events, concerts, performances, field trips, sports lessons, plus fitness and craft instruction sessions.
But that’s not all.
The recreation department is also offering various camps for youth that focus on developing athletic skills as well as creative expression through theater and dance.
In addition, there’s an ongoing series of classes for crafts and fitness, for both adults and youth.
Town Supervisor Ron Conover said July 15 that a full schedule of stimulating activities for all ages was a long-standing tradition locally.
“In Bolton, there’s a real interest in recreational programs and keeping youth interested,” he said. “Offering these programs for all ages is an important part of what we are as a community.”
