Planning a Fun-Filled Summer!

Hello Sunshine Families,

Summer is getting closer and we are excited to share some dates with you so that you can put our Open House and Talent Show on your calendar!

On Thursday, June 29th at 6:00pm, we will be having our Open House! Your children can check out Oakland Park and meet their counselors and other children in their group. We will also be able to pick up EpiPens at this time and answer any questions you may have.

Save the date for the annual Talent Show on Tuesday, August 2nd! As we get closer, we will let families know about the start time of the show as it varies depending on the number of acts!

Below are the weekly plans including field trips and dates for Friday swimming at Hinkley pond. Please note the one flip flop of swimming/field trip on week 4 when we go to Walpole Children’s Theater. Permission slips will be sent out on Google Forms and as a hard copy for your convenience in advance of each field trip. Please have these in as early as possible so that we can get the bus rolling as quickly as possible on field trip days!

2022 End of Summer Message

Hello Sunshine Families,

Another summer is in the books! We lucked out with beautiful, sunny weather and survived a heat wave thanks to our water slides! We had so much fun with field activities, arts and crafts, music, and new friendships.

We appreciated your support and flexibility as we made some changes to our swimming schedule due to pool renovations and water quality issues. In the end, we found a fantastic place to swim at Hinkley Pond! As always, the highlights of our summer are our Annual Talent Show in week 5 and our Carnival on the last day of our program. Thanks to all the parents who volunteered to help at the carnival – this support is crucial and allows our carnival to run smoothly!

Thank you for sharing your children with us – we have enjoyed their smiles and laughter and we hope to see you all again next summer! In the meantime, some of the counselors are available to babysit throughout the school year. Use this link to access our 2022 Babysitters list!

Take Care,

The Sunshine Group
