Eligibility: School aged youth from Dryden, students in the Varna After School Program. Parents/guardians welcome. Limit of 8 families.

COVID19 information: All participants must wear masks. On arrival, participants will be asked health screening questions to check for recent symptoms, contact with COVID19 positive individuals, contact with people from states on New York's travel advisory list.


Once you register, we'll provide information on where to meet, what to bring, what materials & refreshments will be provided, and an 'assumption of risk and waiver of liability' form that will need a parent/guardian signature.

We anticipate there will be many people interested in this program. If we have already reached the 8 family limit, we'll let you know and notify you that you have been placed on a wait list.
