REC CLUBS AT LAKESIDE PARK
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Join us at Lakeside Park for a few fun activities each month with Recreation Staff and Community Guests!
The main goal of all Rec Clubs at Lakeside Park is to encourage participants to socialize in a positive way with peers through shared interests.
During Rec Clubs, we will be offering a variety of activities for elementary and middle school students from the time they get off the bus until 5pm.
*NEW FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS - THIS EXTENDED TIME IN THE PARK IS A GREAT OPTION!
Please have your child bring a snack each day.
A transportation form must be on file with the Transportation Department in order to take the bus from school to Lakeside Park.
If you have checked "yes, my child will need transportation" upon registration, it is your responsibility to make those arrangements with the transportation office; however, we will follow up with the schools to cross-check their current bus list each month.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, our Rec Clubs are sure to make memories! This school year, we are incorporating some talented community guests on Tuesdays & Thursdays!
Our special guest this month is artist, Victoria Hayes!
Tuesdays - Creative Club* (1)
Tuesdays - Indoor Gaga Club
Wednesdays - Holiday Recipe Club
Thursdays - Creative Club* (2)
Thursdays - Dodgeball Club
*You can sign up for EITHER or ALL of these clubs! See below for details.
Join our special guest and local artist, Victoria Hayes. Each Tuesday & Thursday Creative Club will build on an individual, continuous project and doing both ensures more time for genuine creativity. If you can't sign up for both, just doing either the Tuesday or Thursday Club is still a win! We are really looking forward to fantastic, unique creations with the help of our special community guest! This November the Creative Club will be making a "thankfulness" mobile to help celebrate the approaching Thanksgiving holiday. The completed project will reflect each child's appreciation of their life and surroundings and give them a finished work of art to share at home.
Indoor Gaga Club:
It's cold out but our favorite summer camp activity doesn't have to come to an end! We are so excited that we can still play gaga with our indoor inflatable gaga court! Each Tuesday Indoor Gaga Club will have fun playing gaga in different and unique styles.
Holiday Recipe Club:
We are getting festive in Rec Clubs this month! The kids will be able to create fun and easy holiday recipes that don't require any cooking or baking. Each week they will be taught how to make a festive treat and make their own recipe card to bring home so they can recreate the fun at home!
For anyone that loves dodgeball, this is guaranteed to be a blast with friends! There are many ways to play dodgeball so all ages can enjoy moving around, being active, and using tons of energy. Variations of this game will be played like asteroids, battleship, doctor dodgeball, etc. We can't wait to see you in Dodgeball Club!
A Bit More About our Community Guest:
Victoria followed her early interest in art to the University of New Hampshire. While there she explored drawing and printmaking, inspired by organic form. After graduating with a BFA degree, Victoria continued her interest in printmaking working as a fine art edition printer at Solo Press in Manhattan producing lithograph editions for prominent artists.
Inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e woodcut relief prints, Victoria began a series of woodcuts based on the landscape. A surge of interest in the woodcut led to edition printing for many New York and European artists experimenting with the medium.
A continuing interest in the natural world led Victoria to explore more immediate and diverse media such as watercolor, pastel, collage and assemblage. Her studies led her to a masters degree program in Studio Art at The College of New Rochelle. While there she developed her imagery exploring mixed media to create objects reflecting a continuing connection to nature.
After completing her certificate in art education, Victoria has taught students in grades K-8 at many local schools, including Dutchess Day School, Mizzentop School and Dutchess Arts Camp, passing on to them her love and enjoyment of art.
