Registration for programs listed in the brochure with a flower ( ) symbol
will begin at 8:30 am on Wednesday, April 29th. Registration for all other
programs will begin at 8:30 am on Wednesday, May 13th.
Look for new programs throughout the brochure; they have yellow titles!
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to forego mailing our seasonal summer bro-
chure. Instead, you can find the brochure online either on our website or social media platforms.
Additionally, registration for summer programs will begin on two different dates. Burlington residents will be able
to register online for some programs beginning on Wednesday, April 29th at 8:30 am. (When looking through
the brochure, these programs have a yellow flower image next to them and include full week youth programs,
limited Therapeutic Recreation programs and special events that take place in May). Resident registration for
all other programs and events (ones which do not have a yellow flower image) will begin Wednesday, May 13th
at 8:30 am.
Non-resident registration will begin 3 weeks after a program’s resident registration begins.
Our brochure and registration will be solely online until social distancing requirements have been lifted. At that
time, you will be able to register in person or by mail, and pick up a copy of the brochure at our office or the
Counscil on Aging.
If your desired class is filled, you will be notified and placed on a waiting list. We will make every effort to
accommodate those on the waiting list.

V Summer Inclusion Program ~ Deadline: May 15th
If your child receives special education services in school or requires any accommodations in programs, he/
she may qualify for free support. Our therapeutic recreation specialist will work with your family to ensure
the appropriate accommodations are being made, and our qualified support staff will work with your child as
needed in the various programs that he/she may attend in order to provide your child with a rewarding and fun
experience. Our therapeutic recreation specialist, support staff and program directors will work as a team to
modify activities and/or equipment, provide emotional and behavioral support and facilitate social interaction
so that all children can participate to their fullest potential. At Burlington Parks and Recreation we utilize a
group inclusion model and 1:1 support will be granted only on an as-needed basis, pending assessment
by the therapeutic recreation specialist. Support staff as well as a sensory friendly indoor space will be
available for quiet breaks at Club Simonds.
In order to accommodate with a sufficient number of staff members, the deadline to notify us for summer
program support is May 15. If we are not notified by May 15, additional support services cannot be guaranteed.
