Welcome to the Hillside School Playground website!
This website is where you can find out everything you need to know about the Hillside School Summer Playground Program!!
Check out the activities planned for each week, including who will be visiting the playground using the calendar links on the left!!
Thank you ever so much for all your wonderful and generous donations of candy for Halloween in July! Click on the "photos from camp" link to the left to see some great pictures of the kids and The Levins, who performed their "Monsters, Aliens & Stinky Ice Cream" show for us.
Believe it or not, we are coming up on our last week of playground! It has been a joy for me, for the staff and, I hope, for your kids.
Please join us on Friday, 8/7/15 at 9:15 for our end of the summer Talent Show! Bring your cameras. I promise to have you at Van Antwerp for their show at 10:15, if you have an older sibling to watch. The kids will then have an ice cream social and pick up will be at the normal time of noon. If your child has a food allergy that prevents them from having ice cream, please supply a treat for them.
This Friday, July 31, is "Halloween in July" at Hillside Playground. We will have a costume parade, Mask-Making in Arts & Crafts, "Monsters, Aliens & Stinky Iced Cream" from the Levins and, of course, trick or treating. In order to make this last fun activity a success, we ask that each camper bring in a bag of candy. We will combine it all and have a truly impressive "stash-o-stuff" for our Halloween festivities! We thank you in advance for your generosity and look forward to posting some great pictures on this website (see "photos from camp" at left).
If your child has any food allergies and you don't want them trick or treating, please send their own personal trick or treat snack in a plastic bag and inform the counselors that those are the ONLY snacks your child should eat. If you would rather leave it with me, please see me in the morning when you drop your child off.
Parents, if your child has an allergy or medical condition, please do not hesitate to discuss it with our camp medical director. She will be more than happy to speak with you and wants to make sure that we have all of the information we need!
What to bring to camp everyday:
A reusable water bottle, (with camper's first and last name on it)
To put on sunscreen
To wear closed toed sneakers (no flip-flops)
Drop off is 9:00 each morning and pick up is at 12 noon
You MUST sign your child IN and OUT each day!
