Pine Plains Summer Day Camp will be open with 6 weekly sessions from July 6th-August 14th.

Due to this year’s unique situation with COVID-19, we have had to make some adjustments to our program.  This includes a limited number of campers who have completed Kindergarten and No middle school group.  Registration will be open to residents of the Town of Pine Plains first, beginning on Friday, June 12th.  The remaining slots will be filled by non-resident applicants using a lottery system.  If you are a Pine Plans Resident, go online to Pine Plains Recreation Family ID to register your child.  If you are a non-resident and would like to get your child’s name into the lottery or have any questions, email Jen Chase at:
