Welcome to Deerfield's Youth Program Department.
THE TOWN OF DEERFIELD HAS A LONG HISTORY OF PROVIDING A WONDERFUL YOUTH PROGRAM FOR ITS RESIDENT YOUTH WHICH CONTINUES TODAY.
We run a year round Youth Program for our Town Residential Familes and Youth at little or no cost to town Residents.
Summer Park Program - (6 week Program)
Held in our Town Park, The Wilderness Park on Walker Rd in the Town of Deerfield.
This program runs from July to August 4 days a week and is supervised by a staff of 2 youth Leader and serveral teen Councelors.
The Program offers organized sports, games, arts and crafts, and plenty of play time. We offer 3 different field trips out of the Park and often invite entertainment and learning opportunties to to come in.
Registration into the Summer Park Program is free to all Town of Deerfield Residents and it's Youth. We do have a non-resident fee for youth from other towns of $250.00 - due to a special agreement with the Town of Schuyler, Schuyler Residents will pay one half of that cost.
Fall-Winter-Spring Youth Program
Our staff provides a schedule of events on the weekends during the year. We seek out local venues and host afternoon events, such as bowling, skating, Movies, Community Entertainment Businesses twice a month.
A schedule will be provided in for October through April and is open to all Deerfield Resident Youth and Families, usually at no cost. There are some events of which we offer a Cost/Share price always noted on the schedule in advance.
Bussing is occasionally used but times it is the responsiblity of the Families to drop off and pick up youth.
