1 New Hartford Recreation Spring/Summer 2014 Camp Brodie Edition Dan Jerram, Alesia Kennerson and Jack Casey. Exploring Together After months of waking up in darkness and stacking armloads of firewood to keep the woodstove burning, I m pretty sure that we re all ready for the warmer days of summer to come our way so we all can get back outside. As the thermometer slowly starts to work its way upwards, and the grass begins turning green, it s the perfect time for us all to start thinking about summer plans and how New Hartford s Parks and Recreational areas can be a part of the summer fun! The vast majority of recreational spring programming revolves around youth sports activites, which include baseball, softball and soccer at New Hartford s Brown s Corner. Many Spring evenings and weekends are spent at this premier sports facility, where parents, grandparents, friends and children can enjoy the thrill of competitive sports in a serene setting. Kudos to the parent volunteers who take the time to teach the fundamentals of the game while emphasizing good sportsmanship. Not only does Brown s Corner provide fields for active youth, but it is also a great place to take a quiet walk on an early morning or an afternoon. As spring turns to summer, children s programming centers around Camp Brodie, the nine-week outdoor adventure camp for youth. This summer program truly has something for every child! With a focus on outdoor summer fun that includes arts & crafts, hiking, field sports and beach time on beautiful West Hill Pond, each week provides a child-friendly theme complete with guest speakers and a getaway field trip. Stanclift Cove and Brodie Beach provide a place to enjoy walking barefoot in the sand, swimming and boating. Stanclift Cove is jointly operated with the Town of Barkhamsted while Brodie is New Hartford s own gem. Beach Stickers are required for access to each Beach (sold separately). Summer evenings will feature the Summer Concert Series at Brodie Park. Every Wednesday night in July, music will fill the continued on page 3 Phone: (860) (seasonal) Fax: (860) Website: Table of Contents Berkshire Hall Rental... 2 Camp Brodie Today... 4 Camp Brodie Exploring Together... 1, 3 Camp Programs Offered by week Camp Registration Form Concert Series Counselors In Traing (CIT s)... 4, 11 Discount Tickets... 2 Food... 5 Medication Form New Hartford Events... 2 New Hartford Parks... 2 Non-Camp Programs... 21, 22 Non-Camp Registration Form Policies/Procedures Release Form Staff Information... 5 Swim Lessons... 13, 19 Week 1 - Spring Fling... 6 Week 2 - Camp Freedom... 7 Week 3 - Outdoor Survival... 8 Week 4 - Wacky Water Week... 9 Week 5 - Wildlife Detectives Week 6 - Animal World Week 7 - Soaring into Space Week 8 - Dinosaur Adventure Week 9 - Summer Blast What to Bring... 5

3 New Hartford Seniors What a great time we re all having here at the New Hartford Senior Center! We have something for everyone! Fitness class four times a week, line dancing on Thursday mornings, Scrabble and cards, yoga, quilting and crafts, and the book club. We have speakers on different topics accompanied by a FREE light luncheon. Check your newsletter for upcoming events! Some of our special events include a traditional Irish dinner of corned beef and cabbage in March, a spring luncheon in May, the senior picnic in July, a Thanksgiving luncheon in November, and the Christmas luncheon in December. We also go to the historic Gilson Theater twice a year for a sumptuous buffet luncheon and a movie. Always a great time! Call to have a complimentary newsletter sent to your home! If you like what you see and would like to receive the Senior Sentinel monthly, it s just $5.00 a year for postal delivery, but if you are age 85+ or have an address, it s free! We hope to see you here at the New Hartford Senior Center and don t forget New Hartford Seniors Have More Fun! Exploring Together continued from page 1 air as the Recreation Commission once again sponsors five free events that range from classic rock to swing; starting weekly at 6:30 pm (weather permitting). Pack some food, grab a blanket and get ready for some toetapping, arm raising, hip-shaking fun! Jones Mountain, whose entrance is located on Steele Road, is another of New Hartford s parks and recreational areas. This 150 acres of conservation land is a hiker s dream. It s filled with trails for hikers of every level and has a reward at the end that is second to none: a spectacular view of New Hartford s Village Center. Jones Mountain is the perfect place for a Mountaintop picnic on a warm spring or summer day. Fishing season is now in full swing in New Hartford with many anglers drawn to the high quality trout fishing of the Farmington River. Callahan Park, located adjacent to the river provides a place for the fisherman to gain access to this prime area and also provides the non-fisherman with a place to sit and read a book or just relax by the water. Alternatively, the solitude of the Nepaug River on the south side of town or perhaps the quiet of an early morning on West Hill Pond provide additional fishing sites. When planning your fishing excursion, keep in mind that The Annual New Hartford Fishing Derby on the Farmington River begins on May 17 and goes through May 26th. Don t miss this opportunity to catch the tagged fish and win a grand prize worth $3,000. The sound of joyful laughter can be heard at the two beautiful New Hartford Playscapes assembled by parent volunteers. The largest one, known as Funlandia is located at Brodie Park, while the newest additon to the fun, recently constructed by the local Parent Teacher Organization, can be found behind Ann Antolini School. These Playscapes provide the perfect spot for children to swing, slide and climb while parents can sit on the sidelines and watch the fun. With over 350 acres of town-owned land, New Hartford provides ample opportunities to go Exploring Together. With family and friends by your side, venture out and see what you can find. Walk the trails at Brodie Park or discover the trail behind Antolini School that takes you over to East Cotton Hill Road and then continue over to the Phillips Farm and walk the perimeter of the field. Look for frogs, birds, butterflies and wild flowers. Looking ahead to the next few months, I know that my family and I will spend more than a few Saturdays in any one of New Hartford s parks. And certainly, once the water warms, the kids will be want to hit the beach at Brodie! I hope that you, too, will be able to find the time to spend with your family or friends either at Brodie Beach, at a playscape, take a walk along a trail or maybe attend a summer concert. New Hartford parks something for everyone! Daniel V. Jerram, First Selectman 3
