HAMILTON — The Hamilton Parks and Recreation Board is bringing back summer recreation programs for 2021 to get children outside, active and learning new things.

Each event is free of charge for the participants but participation does require a registration form, available at the Hamilton Town Hall starting April 15. Each program is first come, first served, as many have limited space for participants. It is not required to be a Hamilton resident to sign up and participate.

Programs begin in June and run through the end of July and include everything from golf camp, to culinary arts lessons, dance classes and more.
