Summer jobs opening up for youth programs

(Continued)

Along with paddleboarding, the recreation department will also be offering new horseback riding and fencing programs. The popular preschool, youth park and tween programs will also change from two-week sessions to one-week sessions; that way kids will have an opportunity to take advantage of more programs during the summer.

“These all used to be six-week programs, but last year we went to two-week sessions, and this year we’re going to do them all as one-week sessions,” Crowley said. “That’s because there are so many more opportunities and new programs so people can put together different weeks of doing different things.”

This year’s summer program schedule won’t be available for a couple more months, but for the benefit of prospective job applicants, the job descriptions posted on the city’s website list each position’s start and end times, most of which run from July through August with some pre- and post-season work.
