Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • April 22, 2009 Waldwick Summer camp participants in Waldwick will be paying a fee this year for the first time in history. The borough council last week approved an ordinance instituting the $20 charge per child for the five-week summer recreation program. “We gave it a lot of thought; we argued back and forth, and we decided this is the right time to say `yes,’” said Councilman Charles Farricker, the council’s recreation liaison. He said the fee charge had been under consideration for at least two years. “It’s a great program; they are all certified teachers. $20 is a small fee, but it’s at least something coming into the town,” Farricker added. He also said that the fee would be waived for anyone who cannot afford it. “We are not going to make money, just to cover a little of Borough to charge nominal fee for summer program our costs,” he explained, adding that other area towns have been charging for their programs for a number of years. Borough Administrator Gary Kratz asked residents to pre-register for the program so as not to waste time on the first day of camp. Residents may print registration forms online and mail back with payment to: Borough Administrator’s Office, 63 Franklin Turnpike. On-site registration will be held on the first day. The program begins on Monday, July 6 and will meet each day (weather permitting) from 9 a.m. to noon. The program ends on Friday, Aug. 7. Each recreation site (Traphagen, Crescent School or HCA Park) will be supervised by a fully-certified teacher with assistance by teenage counselors. The camp offers a bal- anced program of physical activities, including soccer and kickball, along with arts and crafts projects taught also by certified teachers. As they look towards summer, residents are reminded to purchase their pool badges before May 23 to avoid the $10 additional fee. They may avail themselves of the downloadable pool registration form at the borough’s website www. . First time registrants will need to register in person to take the ID picture. Pictures will be taken at the Borough Clerk’s Office until the pool opens. The pool is open, for weekends only, beginning on Saturday, May 23. Daily hours will begin on the first Monday after the closing of schools – June 22. Pool hours are from noon until 8 p.m. daily; 10-8 on weekends..
