Due to COVID-19, all of the challenges and state mandates required to operate a summer program, and most importantly the health and safety of children and municipal employees, the Wallingford Selectboard has decided the Summer Recreation Program will not take place this summer. We hope to see you all in 2021.

The town of Wallingford under the guidance of Co-Directors Lisa Cotrupi and Lawrie Roundy will be offering a wonderful four week program of swimming, sports, crafts, cooking and more.

Tentative Program Details for 2020:

  • Offered to children who have completed Kindergarten through 6th grade.
  • The program will run during the following three weeks:
  • July 27-July 31; August 3-7; August 10-14
  • Hours of operation: Monday-Friday, 7:30 am-5:15 pm (actual rec. program hours will be 8:45 am to about 4:15 pm).  
  • Children will need to bring their own snack, lunch, beverages, and sunscreen lotion.  We highly recommend that children bring a water bottle to be refilled throughout the day.

Daily Schedule:

The schedule will be similar to that of previous year’s recreational programs.  Participants will be dropped off at Wallingford Elementary School in the kindergarten classroom (enter outside door near basketball court/playground) each morning (no earlier than 7:30 a.m.) Morning activities begin at 8:45 a.m.  Depending on the projects for the day— recycled-materials crafts, gardening, cooking, organized games, sports, or hiking– this may include a walk down to the Wallingford Recreational Field.  After lunch, everyone hikes over to Elfin Lake for swimming and other beach activities. Children are expected to be picked up at Elfin Lake weather permitting by 5:15 p.m. .
