WOODSTOCK—Summer in Your Backyard is a free community collaborative summer series that will take place two days a week for three weeks from July 27 – Aug. 11, outside of the community room at Safford Commons in West Woodstock. It is open to all children in the Windsor Central Supervisory Union from kindergarten through 6th grade.
A fun, lighthearted time for kiddos to get out of the house, see some peers and take part in some different activities with daily special guests from different area organizations such as ArtisTree, the National Park and VINS.
Due to Covid-19, group size will be kept small, therefore it is important to register. Activities will only stay outside, therefore “camp” is weather permitting. They will conduct health checks, practice social distancing, wear masks when social distancing isn’t possible and follow regular hand washing and/or hand sanitizing schedule. Full health and safety guidelines are on the registration form, and the event is subject to cancellation if needed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
