BEHIND THE SCENES at Westford Parks & Recreation
“Our staff is 100% dedicated to making every child feel acknowledged, respected, and supported as they try new things and interact with others.” - Assistant Director Michelle Collett.
Our Summer Weekly Programs are fun, flexible, and filled with activities chosen for each program's mission and age group. There is much preparation behind the laughter and fun, to include the careful planning of curriculums and events, the purchase of supplies, and the hiring and management of seasonal staff – counselors trained at our Leadership program with First Aid and CPR, and certified lifeguards who monitor recreation programs at Forge and Edwards Beach. Westford Parks & Recreation works hard every day to ensure program participants, and their families, enjoy a positive, memorable summer experience with us.
