2018 SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION Summer Camp registration for Beverly residents will be taken on a first come/ first served basis starting on February 5th. We’re improving our administrative processes and will not use a lottery system for camp registration this year. Non-resident registration will begin on March 5th HOW TO REGISTER • Online at our website: www.bevrec.com.

Use the form in this brochure and make checks payable to the Beverly Recreation Department DEPOSITS • At the time of registration the following deposits will be due: $100 per camp session selected $10 for each Early or Late Care session selected WAIT LIST • Once sessions are full we will take a wait list. To get your child on this list, complete the wait list form on bevrec.com and mail it to bevrec@beverlyma.gov. We will contact you if an opening becomes available.

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT NOTE ON POTTY TRAINING… All of our campers must be fully and reliably potty trained when they begin camp. This means that your child is able to recognize when they need to go, and can ask to use the potty outside of regularly scheduled bathroom trips. If your child is still having “mistakes” at home, we would not consider them to be potty trained. Counselors are not allowed to assist with diapering and as such, campers may not wear diapers or pull-ups to camp. We understand that the occasional potty mistakes still happen with the 3 to 5 year old camper, and so we will allow up to three accidents per session. If a fourth accident occurs within a session, the child will not be able to return to that camp session. Our Medical Director will assist with potty accidents, and guardians will be immediately notified. 25

A MESSAGE FROM THE RECREATION DIRECTOR Winter is starting after a mild fall and the holidays are in full gear. Things at Lynch Park are beautiful and we have been busy updating our offices to provide ADA accessibility to the building and we are creating new ADA compliant bathrooms for park visitors to use during the colder months when the office is open. Lynch Park is truly the “Gem of the North Shore”, just one of our many beautiful waterfront parks that provide so much enjoyment to guests year round. We would like to welcome Reini Perez to our staff as our new Recreation Facilities Coordinator. Reini will be responsible for tracking issues at our many parks and playgrounds in addition to monitoring the upkeep of our buildings and facilities at Lynch Park, Dane Street Beach, Obear Park and Camp Paradise. During the summer, Reini will oversee our park rangers and lifeguard staff to ensure public safety. We completed a new play structure at the Oak Heights Playground in Centerville with the help of many great neighbors participating in the community build over a couple of weeks in October. Special thanks to Joanne O’Donnell for keeping us on track and recruiting so many great volunteers! We could not do projects like this without the help of dedicated neighbors. We are moving forward with plans to build a fully ADA-compliant playground at Pete’s Park in Centerville as well as new play structures at Vittori Park, Colgate Park and Balch Playground in 2018. We are also planning to repair over $150,000 worth of playground equipment at parks throughout Beverly to resolve issues caused by vandalism and wear and tear to the equipment at our 28 playgrounds. We are very lucky to have the continued generous support of the Beverly Community Preservation Committee to fund these projects and many more around the city. This group works incredibly hard to help many groups in Beverly fund projects that will continue to make Beverly an amazing place to live. I would also like to thank the David S. Lynch Trustees for continuing their financial support of improvements to our public parks and open spaces. Without these two groups, we could not do any of these great projects. Many thanks to Mayor Cahill and the Department of Public Services for their continued support of these projects and the many other improvements to parks and open spaces in Beverly. We are very lucky to have such beautiful recreational resources in Beverly for everyone to enjoy. We continue to plan for the 2018 summer season. Many thanks to our full-time staff for their dedication throughout the year and to our summer staff and CIT volunteers for their hard work every summer. We look forward to continuing to serve you and wish you all a Happy New Year. Thank you very much for your continued support during my 15 years as Bev Rec Director. I look forward to hearing from you and helping to make your leisure time for you and your families healthy and enjoyable. Feel free to send us ideas for programs and improvements.

Pollutants from improperly disposed pet waste may be washed into storm sewers or melting snow. Storm sewers do not go to the SESD treatment plant. Instead most storm sewers drain into streams, lakes or along the coast carrying many pollutants along with storm water.

When pet waste is disposed of improperly, your health may be at risk, too. Pets, children who play outside, and adults who garden are most at risk for infections from some of the bacteria and parasites found in pet waste. Flies may also spread diseases from animal's waste.

Year Round - Only on-leash dogs are allowed in the parks from 6:00AM-10:00PM

Beverly’s dog population is estimated at 4000 and using that statistic as a baseline, it would suggest a “solid waste” of about 1600 pounds every day.

PLEASE NOTE: Independence Park - Dogs are not allowed on the beach from 8:00AM to 7:30PM Cooney Field - Dogs are only allowed beyond outfield fence of baseball field All Other Parks - Dogs are not allowed on the beaches during times that they are not allowed in the parks

Pet waste may not be the largest or most toxic pollutant in urban waterways, but it is one of the many little sources of pollutants that add up to a big problem for water quality. Fortunately, there are simple things we can do to keep water clean.

Cleaning up after your pet can be as simple as taking a plastic bag or pooper-scooper along on your next walk. What should you do with the waste you pick up? No solution is perfect, but here are the choices: Flush it down your toilet goes or private septic ants before the

the toilet– The water from to the SESD treatment plant system that removes pollutwater reaches a water body.

Bury it in the yard– Dig a hole or trench about 5 inches deep, away from vegetable gardens and water bodies (lakes, streams, wells, oceans), or ditches with water. Throw it in the trash– This may be easy, but it is not the best solution. After collection, the waste is taken to an incinerator that can cause pollution problems. Another option is to install an underground pet waste digester that works like a small septic tank.
