Town of Plattekill Recreation Director Stephanie Doland attended the February 5th regular Plattekill Town Board meeting to discuss pricing for the Plattekill Summer Program’s Summer 2020 season. Parents are already calling the recreation department to ask about pricing and registration. The Plattekill Summer program is a full day camp which operates 25 days during the summer. Reviewing a breakdown of costs, the 2020 season will see an increase in the cost of field trips. Last season, one of the five scheduled field trips included a day at the Walkway over the Hudson, which does not charge admission. The Walkway trip will be replaced this summer with one which does charge admission.
The Plattekill Summer program must also factor in admission increases that will be taking effect at the Ulster County Pool Complex this upcoming summer. The Summer Program will be charged $2 more per camper for a day at the pool. Plattekill Town Supervisor Joseph Croce, concerned about the price hike for pool admission, stated that he will contact the Ulster County Department of Health to see why the pool prices have increased.
Factoring in these increased costs, the Board voted to increase the price of the 2020 Plattekill Summer Program to $525. All registrations received after June 5 will incur a $25 late fee. More information regarding registration will be made available by the Town of Plattekill Recreation Department in the upcoming weeks.
