Butterfield will host two programs
The Butterfield Library in Cold Spring has announced the dates for its free summer camps for elementary school and middle school students. The half-day camps, which are funded by an anonymous donor, are open to Philipstown residents.
The first camp, “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!,” for children entering first through fifth grades, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon from July 11 to 15. Its activities, games, and crafts will be based on the summer reading theme of fitness and sports. It will include visits from special guests such as author and performer Jason Edwards and educators from Animal Embassy and Mad Science. The camp is limited to 20 students and registration opens May 1.
The middle-school camp, “Get in the Game,” for students entering sixth through eighth grades, will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. from Aug. 1 to 5. It is open to 15 students. Registration began April 1.
