More than 600 children from the Lynbrook Public Schools and Village of Lynbrook beat the heat this summer while participating in the Lynbrook Public Schools Summer Playground. The annual program is open to incoming K-8 students and is held at both Marion Street and West End schools until Aug. 9.
A number of Lynbrook eighth graders serve as volunteers, while many Lynbrook High School students and alumni return each summer to serve as counselors. Campers participate in recreational activities which include sports, arts and crafts, computers, playground games and sprinklers. They also have the option of going on trips. This summer, campers visited ArtRageous, Woodmere Lanes, United Skates, Once Upon a Sundae and more. Special themed days and events such as a carnival, Field Day and the anticipated summer talent show are also incorporated into the program each year to give children a memorable summer experience.
“I like coming here and playing with all my friends,” said incoming fifth grader Daniel Carrano. “It’s really fun.”
