Safe Haven Program, Summer 2019 - Week 10 "Survivor"
Safe Haven is a recreation program for children ages 4-12. Fun activities will be planned each week to provide children with opportunities to learn and enjoy themselves. We will be scheduling weekly visits to the library in addition to a variety of other local trips. Each week our crafts and activities will be geared toward the weekly theme. Make this summer a memorable one by joining us!!
We’d like to invite you to enroll your child in the Summer Safe Haven Program at Colonel Town for children ages 4-12. We'll continue to create a camp-like atmosphere for the children as we really want campers to look forward to coming to Safe Haven every day.
In trying to create a fun day camp for children, our program has weekly themes. The daily games, crafts, and various activities usually center on those themes. Campers will be divided into three age groups: blue group (ages 4-5), yellow group (ages 6-8), and the red group (ages 9-12). Children go to the pool each afternoon, weather permitting. We have Safe Haven staff members who remain at the pool with them to ensure each child’s safety. The days end with “Camper of the Day” awards for each group.There are many local field trips that we take in the summer. For example, we go to the library each week, attend the free family movies at the Rialto Theatre, enjoy Impact’s live performances at the Rialto Theatre, take walking trips, etc.
We’re also very fortunate to be able to offer free lunches to our campers again this summer. The NH Department of Education partners with the NH Food Bank the White Mountains Regional High School to prepare well-balanced, nutritious cold lunches each day. They create two-week menus so that parents have advanced notice of what the meals will be, just in case a child may not like what’s going to be prepared. Parents do not have to fill out any paperwork for this service.
Our staff is currently working hard to finish scheduling all the summer field trips, activities, games, crafts, etc. The following is a breakdown of the weekly schedule so far:
Week 1 (6/19-6/21) – “Getting to Know You”. Activities this week are designed to help the campers and staff members get to know each other. Trip to Santa's Village on Friday, 6/21.

The following is a list of items that should be packed in your child’s backpack each day:
Cold lunch (if you don’t want your child to have the free cold lunch provided at Safe Haven)
Flip flops or sandals
One Safe Haven shirt (which is worn whenever your child leaves Colonel Town property or when there are a lot of children on Colonel Town property – as a safety precaution)
Bottle of sunscreen labeled with your child’s name (this is only brought on the first day and is left at Safe Haven – our staff is very good at ensuring each child wears sunscreen throughout the day)
Many of our campers are enrolled in other Colonel Town programs, such as swim lessons, gymnastics camp, tennis, etc. If your child is enrolled in any of the summer Colonel Town programs, our staff will walk your child to and from those programs.
