We have incredibly exciting news to share! Thanks to KaBOOM! and the Walt Disney Company, the Bay Terrace Pool & Tennis Center of the Samuel Field Y will be getting a brand new playground! We can't wait to share this great community resource with our families, and we're so honored and grateful to have been given this opportunity to help bring happiness to over 2,000 children in our community. If you're available on Friday, September 23, and would like to help enrich our community as a volunteer for this momentous day, you can reach out to Erica Tolentino at (718) 225-6750 ext. 207, or register here.
With the camp season coming to an end, we're offering our Mini Camp summer program from Monday, August 22 through Friday, September 2 to help solve your childcare solution through the end of the summer. Here's our calendar and registration forms so you can see what exciting trips we have lined up this year. Mini Camp is a per diem program, so you can create your own schedule and sign up for the days that work best with your summer schedule. Campers go swimming every morning at the Tanenbaum Family Pool across the street, and then leave for their scheduled trip. Parent drop off is at the Y as early as 8AM and pick up can be as late as 6PM.
We're excited to announce that our annual Fall Family Festival will take place this year on Sunday, September 18, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at the Tanenbaum Family Pool. Join us for a day of arts and crafts, bouncies and carnival games, food and refreshments, and of course our first Summer Camp and Early Childhood Open House of the new season!
Price of admission is the donation of fresh produce such as apples, oranges, potatoes, and/or carrots, which will be packaged and delivered to members of our community in need.
On September 18, the Samuel Field Y is forming a team to participate in UJA-Federation of New York's Aqua Run at Tobay Beach to support poverty initiatives. We thought you might be interested in joining us for a swim and/or a walk/run through Tobay's Bird and Game Sanctuary, or supporting our team by making a one-time donation. You can choose to swim and run/walk as an individual, form a team of two where each person does one portion, or you can opt in to participate in the swim or walk/run. Either way, it should be a beautiful day! Click here to register.
