Malverne Summer Recreation


Welcome to the Malverne Summer Recreation’s 2019 Summer Program. I am happy to be back organizing another summer of activities for the youth of Malverne.  My staff and I have been working hard to create some great events this year and we are looking forward to the many exciting things we have planned. There have been some changes to locations and trips so this newsletter will provide you with all the details you need to plan and transition into our summer programming. If you should have any questions please feel free to reach out to a staff member.

Our program will begin on Monday, July 8th, 2019 and conclude on Thursday, August 15th, 2019.  We will run Monday through Thursday from 9 A.M. to 12 P.M. for the 6-week duration. Field trips and some specialty days such as movie and bowling days' have different drop off and pick up times, so please be sure to read that section carefully.  We typically conduct a three-hour program for the children each day that keeps them moving and transitioning from station to station. Each group has assigned counselors and some will have volunteers that will assist with the activities throughout the summer. In addition, we have lead supervisors on grounds and all staff and volunteers will be wearing identifiable shirts so you can recognize us.

I hope your children are looking forward to many wonderful times at the Malverne Summer Recreation Program this summer! This website and our newsletter will be used to streamline all the information for the program and provide you with a recreation calendar for our scheduled activities. Please be sure to pay close attention to the calendar of events with drop off locations and times as it may vary throughout the summer. Specifically, this site will be used to communicate weather cancellations and field trip information as we may need to cancel if there is inclement weather or unsafe grounds due to inclement weather. The website is typically updated between 7:30 and 8:00 A.M with cancellations. 



Movie & Bowling Information


We will have our first Movie Day tomorrow, July 9th, and we will be viewing TOY STORY 4. Since it is new to the theatres the cost is $9.50, popcorn and a soft drink are included with the price of admission. Movie day is held on Tuesdays and takes place rain or shine! *The cost to attend Movie Day will be either $8 or $9.50 depending on whether the movie is a recent release or not. We will attempt to release this information as soon as it has been confirmed by the theatre. The movie ratings range from G to PG, so we recommend you check the ratings and previews before sending your child if you have concerns. You may also send your child with their own snack or money to purchase an item at the snack stand. For younger participants, please notify their counselor of any diet restrictions your child may have for health or safety reasons. 

Drop off and Pick Up is at the theatre and can be quite chaotic as we are a large program in a small space. We ask that you please follow the drop off and pick up times below. It is important to also not congregate in the front of the theatre after you have dropped off or picked up. This will allow for a safer process.  

K-2 9:35 A.M. K/1 will be located inside the theatre doors

3-5  9:25   A.M.

6-8  9:15   A.M.

Pick up for all is at 11:30 AM 

Bowling is open to grades 3-7 at San-Dee Lanes and will primarily take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. (Please see the calendar) Bowling this year remains at $7.00 and will be collected the day of bowling. This provides your child typically with bowling games and their shoe rentals.  Please be remember to bring or wear socks.  Drop off time will be at 9:15 A.M. and pick up is at 11:30 A.M.
