The 9th annual TryCAN Baseball Under the Lights, hosted by Summit Community Programs and TryCAN, takes place Friday, June 15, 2018 at Jefferson School Field at 110 Ashwood Avenue in Summit, with a tailgate starting at 6:30 pm and game at 7:15 pm. Join us as family, friends, teen peer volunteers and coaches cheer on the baseball talents of our special kids. Special thanks to the Summit Junior Baseball, the Summit FMBA and the Summit Fire Department, Thompson Sporting Goods, Summit Elks Lodge, and Target for their support. We have a full team of players now but would love the public to join us, even just for a few minutes, to cheer our kids on. For RSVP or for more information, please contact TryCAN at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TryCAN Pioneer Playground Camp will provide rewarding opportunities for kids with special needs to be engaged and have fun while participating in activities that will increase self-esteem and confidence. Recreational activities will be similar to those offered in typical day-camps but will focus on social interaction, sensory integration, coordination, sequencing, creativity and following direction. Two certified special education teachers will oversee the camp with support from staff as well as trained peer mentors. Participants will be grouped according to age and ability. The center/station approach will provide daily options to explore activities in a) Arts and crafts to develop fine motor skills, b) Sports, dance and other physical activities to develop gross motor skills, c) Games for socialization, d) Playground play for general development and exploration. The camp is held at Lions Park in New Providence. There are two separate sessions, July 23-37 and July 30-August 3, both running from noon to 3:00 pm. The fee is $120 for either session. Register at www.newprov.org/recreation (select Community Pass Online Recreation, New Providence and 2018 Youth Summer). The camp is open to all with no residency restrictions.
