North Castle Rec Offers New Spring Programs

ARMONK, N.Y. - The North Castle Recreation and Parks Department offers a number of new programs for the spring season that starts April 2.

Three spring break specialty camps for kindergarten through ninth grade take place from April 9 through 13. An All Sports camp, which includes baseball, softball, lacrosse and fitness, will be held at Xtra Effort Training on Business Park Drive. Legos camp and Hobby Quest camp will be held at the Hergenhan Recreation Center. Hobby Quest camp offers aviation club and making magic sessions. The specialty camps “reach kids with a variety of interests,” according to Superintendent of Recreation Susan Snyder.

Two new yoga classes for adults will also start this spring. Prenatal  yoga and yoga for golfers will be taught by certified yoga instructor Barbara Scott.

Two new seniors programs are Roses in Your Garden and Plant Propagation Workshop, taught by Ken Molinari, a gardener at the New York Botanical Garden.

Snyder said the new program ideas “come to us from residents, instructors and staff members. If it’s positive and recreational we’re willing to give it a try.”

The spring programs will generate revenue, which goes to the general town fund. The Recreation Department will bring in $860,000 in program fees and $16,000 in senior fees in 2012, officials said.

“This department brings in revenue,” Snyder said. “There’s no fee to use playgrounds but we charge fees for individual programs.”
