Southborough Recreation announces Summer Camp supervisors

Southborough – Southborough Recreation has announced the addition of Scott LeBrun as its pre-school supervisor for this summer’s Kid’s Kamp to be held at the Finn School beginning Monday June 28. Kid’s Kamp is a half-day playground camp designed for children aged 2.9 years to entering first grade, and is a great introduction to the Finn Elementary School environment for children who will be attending the school in the fall.

LeBrun brings a fresh and unique approach to playground camp. Some of the themes he has planned for this summer are Fun in the Sun Olympic Games, All Things Wild and Free (Animal Theme) and Around the Globe. LeBrun is a town resident and the parent of two pre-school-aged children. He has been employed with the Fay School since 2002, currently as the director of student life and previously in the capacity of dean of students and associate director of Admissions at the school. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Saint Anselm College and a master’s degree from Boston University. He looks forward to getting to know the residents of Southborough and their children.

Additionally, the Recreation Department is pleased to announce that it has hired Frank Nellenback as supervisor of the Tween Adventure Camp. Tween Adventure Camp is new this year and is designed to appeal to students entering grades five and six. Nellenback is a physical education teacher at the Woodward and Neary schools and has been teaching in Southborough since 2006. He holds a bachelor’s degree from SUNY-Oswego and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Physical education and coaching at Boston University. Archery is one of the new activities offered at the camp this year. In addition to a variety of games, sports, crafts and science, Tween Camp incorporates daily luncheon outings and picnics designed for socializing and having fun. Weekly off-site field trips are planned for Wednesdays to places such as Canobie Lake Park and Water Country.

Returning for her fifth year as youth supervisor is Tiffany Goode, physical education teacher at the Woodward School. Goode will head up the Junior Zone Camp at the Woodward School, designed for children entering grades two through four. Children attending this camp will enjoy a variety of activities including sports and outdoor games, arts and crafts, playground play, and science and water activities. Summer camp at Woodward School is a place to make new friends and to familiarize kids with that school’s environment. Goode has been a teacher in Southborough since 2002 and holds a degree in Physical Education from New England College and a master’s degree in health from Cambridge College.

Supervisors of recreation camps are state-licensed teachers, CPR-certified and Epi- Pen-trained and recreation camps meet or exceed the state-mandated Instructor/ Participant ratios. In addition, the vast majority of counselors and supervisors hired are former Southborough campers and Counselors in Training. These youths are familiar with the program as they have spent many summers with the Recreation Department. In this way, recreation camps provide hands-on experience and possible future employment opportunities in a camp setting for the youth of Southborough.

Enrolling in the Recreation Department’s summer camps is a good way for residents to support their town. The camps are run entirely by the town, and net profits earned are turned back to the town. The camps are off ered in weekly sessions beginning June 28 and running for seven weeks, through Aug. 13. Weeks are beginning to fill, so residents are advised to get their registrations in soon. Registrations are accepted online at www.southboroughtown.com/ recreation/recreation, in person or by mail at the Recreation Office , 2 1 Highlan d St., Southborough, MA 01772.
