Pathfinders is our newest summer program for kids who have aged out of Walpole Woods but would still like to continue the summer fun at Jarvis farm. Geared specifically for teens and pre-teens, Pathfinders will engage kids by expanding on the successes of the original program but offering age-appropriate activities like sports and games, science experiments, swimming, and more. Of course we want Pathfinders to work with us someday so they will have the opportunity to take over the younger group of kids at Walpole Woods to lead site-wide activities of their choosing!

Pathfinders must have all Health Forms on le at the time of registration. For safety reasons, children who do not have completed health forms on the rst day of the program will not be able to attend until all necessary materials are provided.

All EPI-Pens must be labelled with your child’s name on it. EPI-Pens must be current, in their original container, and placed inside of a clearly labeled ziploc bag with your child’s picture on it.

Pathfinders is managed by qualified staff with an on-site Program Director, Aquatics Supervisor, and supporting counselors. The counselor to participant ratio is no more than 10:1

All members of our Pathfinders staff are qualified and trained to provide quality care for our summer programs. All staff have completed screening processes that meet the requirements of employment with the Town of Walpole. Each employee is also CPR-certified.

Snacks, Lunch, and Drinks are not provided. Please pack a lunch and a snack for your child each day. There is no refrigeration available. Please do not pack items that spoil in the heat unless you send them in an insulated lunch box with an ice pack. A sturdy lunch bag or box is best over a paper bag so lunch contents do not get crushed.

It is also important to pack enough for your child to drink. It is a good idea for your child to bring a reusable water bottle with them to stay hydrated throughout the day. Due to the high number of allergies, please remind your child at home, as we will at Pathfinders, that there is no sharing of snacks or lunches.

It is important that each participant starts the day off with sunscreen on. There is a lot of open space at Pathfinders and we want to ensure each child is protected during all of our outdoor activities.

Please make sure your child(ren) do not bring electronic devices to Pathfinders, including iPods, handheld gaming systems, or cellphones. There is access for children to call home and for parents to reach staff if the need presents itself. There are no weapons allowed at Pathfinders, fake or otherwise. Electronic devices, toys or trading card games brought to Pathfinders will be held until the end of the day and only returned to parents/guardians at pick-up.

You must withdraw from a session and/or an extended day registration 10 business days prior to the start of the program. There is a 20% processing fee for those who withdraw from a Pathfinders session. The Walpole Recreation Department does not allow sharing or splitting the session with another person or family member’s child. Refunds take 10-14 days to process. You will receive a check issued from Town Hall. In lieu of an 80% check refund, you can elect to have your refund in the form of a Walpole Recreation account credit. Account credits are 100% of the registration fee and can be used towards future Walpole Recreation Department Programs and Activities.

* Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable. *
