All Day Super Fun Summer Program             Has been Cancelled for the              2020 Season

Dear Super Fun Families-

The Sandwich Recreation Department would like to thank you for your patience and support, as we have been planning and researching the possibilities of being able to offer our Super Fun Summer  program, in the safest environment this summer. The safety of our participants and staff has always been our priority.

It is with a heavy heart, that we announce that the All Day Super Fun Program will be cancelled for the 2020 season. This is not an easy decision for the Recreation Department, however we feel it is the right one at this time. During the current state of affairs may families have been financially affected and or left contemplating their family’s best approach to personal safety concerns. As our enrollment in the program has declined it has directly affect the program’s self- funded budget. Therefore, at this time the program based budget could no longer support the Super Fun program operations.

The Super Fun Program is built on developing friendships, playing games, high five circles and coming together under the Thunder Dome to meet as a family. With the social distancing guidelines and anticipated health policies put in place, we don’t feel that our participants or staff would have the same experience this summer.

To our participants, we will miss your smiling faces under the Thunder Dome every morning and the sounds of your laughter and singing in the afternoon. We’ll miss collecting friendship bracelets this summer, high 5 circles, cabin challenges, splashing in Peter’s Pond and of course the never ending Ga-Ga games.

To our families, we appreciate your support and understanding during this trying time. We are deeply disappointed that we will not be spending the summer with your child, and offering them the true Super Fun experience.

To our staff, thank you for being true Super Hero’s. Your positivity and kind hearts make each day better than the last. We will miss the games, conversations over the radios, and dress up days. But most importantly, we will miss you. Thank you for making this program, what it is. The name truly does say it all, you are Super Fun.

With the Super Fun Program being cancelled, we want to assure all our families that the Recreation Department will honor a program registration refund to our families, minus any credit card services paid. Please note, The Sandwich Recreation Department will be processing refunds in a timely manner.

Although, we will not be gathering together under the Thunder dome this summer, please know you are in our thoughts and that our staff is already busy planning for next year. Our thoughts go out to all those families affected by this pandemic and we wish you all a healthy and fun summer. We are currently working on alternative summer programs by offering smaller group sized, week long programs, and hope to get kids back to the business of being kids and safely.  Please visit our website www.sandwichrecreation.com for more information.

The Sandwich Recreation Department greatly appreciates your patience during this time. If you have any questions regarding the status of your refund please email recreation@sandwichmass.org   

We are looking forward to brighter days and to hopefully spending the 2021 summer season with your children.

Stay well,

The Sandwich Recreation Team
