RecCom summer program 2001

Over 250 participants enjoyed the Carlisle Recreation Programs this summer. Almost 200 individuals participated in program offerings ranging from preschoolers' first swim lessons, Summer Fun DayCamp for children entering grades K-4 and a variety of classes for children entering grades 4-8, including pottery, archery, canoeing, tennis, horseback riding and video class. Another 20 young teenagers, anticipating future employment, took baby-sitting and pet-care classes, water-safety-aide or counselor-in-training classes. In addition, 40 older teens worked as swim instructors and camp counselors during the six weeks of the summer programs.

This year, a Concord-Carlisle High School student made a video of the programs, which is available for viewing at the Gleason Library.
