Mayor Rosas is excited to announce the City’s partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Chautauqua County to offer a 6-week Summer Youth Recreation Program for youth ages 5-14. The program is set to take place at the private pavilion area at Point Gratiot Park (formerly known as the Firemen’s Grounds).

Mayor Rosas stated: “Since the unfortunate cancellation of Camp Gross for the 2020 season, I have been actively working with our Recreation & Development Departments to explore ways the City can work with our local youth service providers to offer recreational programming for our City’s youth. I am excited to announce that we are teaming up with the Boys & Girls Club of NCC to offer a Summer Youth Recreation Program at Point Gratiot. We will be providing program space, recreational equipment and some staffing support in our collaborative effort to offer a safe and enjoyable experience for our community’s youth. We are also pleased to announce that the Summer Program will be offered free to City residents. I would like to thank E.J. Hayes – Deputy Director of Planning & Development, Anneliese Bruegel – Boys & Girls Club of NCC Executive Director, and her staff & Board of Directors for their tremendous efforts in putting this program together.”

The Summer Youth Program begins on Monday, July 13th and runs through Thursday, August 20th from 9:00am – 4:00pm Monday – Thursday. There will be no cost for the Summer Program. The program will be offered for 6-weeks with a maximum of 60 youth per week and will be broken into 3 separate 2-week programs. Youth ages 5-14 can sign up for a 2-week program block.

The program will also offer an extended childcare piece from 7:30am-9:00am for a select number of youth whose families may need this service. There is a cost of  $25.00 per session for families that utilize the extended care option.
