Accommodations may be made for families in financial difficulty, Recreation Director Art Psaledas said.Daily activities include arts and crafts, games and sports, with a special theme for each day, according to Psaledas. Special guest entertainers will also make appearances.The children are grouped by age and interest, and are supervised in small groups by experienced staff members. Two field trips are also being planned over the summer at an additional cost.
