Hello parents/guardians,

As you all know here in the Town of Southport we have a summer program at three out of four of our parks- Chapel, Draxler and Goodwin Park. This program has always been a free program and has always provided quality enrichment, educational and recreational programs as well as fun field trips that include two swimming trips every summer, a third field trip that typically changes each summer and a huge “End of the Summer” party for all three parks at Chapel Park with Bobby K. Therefore, due to the expense of running such a great summer program, moving forward, we are going to charge a fee of $45 per child. We hope that this will help offset some of the cost of the many activities, materials and equipment that we provide. So, when you sign up your child(ren) for this summer, I do not want you to be alarmed of the fee applied during the registration process. As always, thank you for your support in our parks and programs. We appreciate your understanding and commitment to our parks program. We look forward to seeing you this summer. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. I will do my best to answer questions you have for us.
