Traditional New Rochelle Parks and Recreation day camps had to be cancelled this summer because of COVID-19, but with some “outside the box” thinking, our Parks and Recreation staff has developed a great option for parents and kids called “Outside the Box in our Parks”.

“Outside the Box” programs will run Monday through Friday for six weeks, from July 13 to August 21 on a rotating basis at ten parks throughout New Rochelle. All activities will observe safe physical distancing for 1-2 hour time blocks and be limited to 15-20 children per group. Program classes include fitness, STEM, gardening and more, as well as special events like Truck Day and Scavenger Hunt.  There’s more in this brochure.

Registration is already underway. Call the Parks & Recreation Department at 914-654-2088 or visit for more information or questions.
