Summer Rec Program
Resident school-age students in the North Allegheny School District are invited to attend the Summer Recreation Program sponsored by the joint municipalities of Bradford Woods, Franklin Park, Marshall, and McCandless. The program includes team sports, group recreation, and arts and crafts. PARTICIPANTS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THE FIRST GRADE.
The program begins on Monday, June 18, and will continue through Friday, July 13, from 8:45 a.m. to noon, with no provisions for lunch. There is no summer rec on Wednesday, July 4.
Parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from the respective centers. On the first day of attendance, each participant is required to pay $135 (cash or check), which includes the program fee and a $50 deductible insurance fee, which will supplement any present accident policy held by the family. Make checks payable to the Town of McCandless.
Registration and medical authorization forms are sent home with the students the last week of school. Additionally, both forms are available for download on this page.
Please make certain that both forms are completed upon enrolling your child in the program. The child must bring BOTH forms, along with the required $135 fee, to the center where he or she will be attending the first day of the program. Forms will not be accepted at the Town of McCandless Town Hall.
Please note that the Medical Authorization form is side two of the Registration form.
