Sun’s out, fun’s out! It’s that time of year for all our summer fun in the community. We have 18 Summer camps for kids including 3 full week camps, 10 day camps, 4 toddler camps and our annual Knothole Baseball camp. These programs have been growing in popularity and we are so lucky to offer these camps to kids in our community and surrounding communities. Our camp counselors have been working hard on creating the best possible programs for your kids and we can’t wait to get started. 

In addition to our new fun camps, we have our annual summer concert series, summer movie nights, and our COMMUNITY DAY! July 13, 2024 from 4-8 pm at Wright Fields @ Veteran’s Park, everyone is in for a treat. We have two great bands, food & drink trucks, a car cruise, vendors, and a kids zone with inflatables, obstacle courses, bounce houses, a petting zoo, and more. 

Also a new addition for this summer is our Kids Running Series. Starting Monday, July 15th and running for 4 Mondays total, we invite kids ages 2 – entering 6th grade to join us for a kids running series! This program is open to all and a great way to get your kids active and learn healthy running techniques in a fun competitive environment. We will have shirts for all the kids and medals for all those who complete all four sessions. We will have trophies for the top three winners in each age bracket. Keep an eye out for registration online and sign up early, we will have to cap each age group at a certain number of kids. 

As for facility updates, you may have noticed some slight enhancements to our Municipal Park – located behind the Township Municipal Building on Darlington Road. Thanks to a donation from Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe, we were able to install a splash pad which kicked off a whole renovation of the park! Our Township Supervisors approved additional upgrades to include synthetic turf surfacing, a restroom building, sidewalks, and a new parking area. These upgrades have allowed us to make this park inclusive for all ages and abilities. We received a grant from Beaver County Tourism to build a picnic shelter and enhance the landscaping of the park as well. We are excited to open this to the public on June 1st, 2024 at 11:00 am. We will be open for the season after June first from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm, 7 days a week. 

Thank you for being a wonderful community and getting involved in all we have to offer. If you have any ideas or want to get involved, we invite you to attend our Rec Board meetings on the first Monday of each month at Wright Fieldhouse at 7:00 pm. These meetings are open to the public and we love your input.

See you this summer!
