Registration Information

announcing the summer schedule for 2006


Keep your children active and busy over the summer

by enrolling them in the Bedford Parks and Recreation Mini-Camp Program.

Mini-Camps are open to students within the Bedford Area School District

who have completed grades 1 through 8.

Mini-Camps are offered for 6 weeks beginning the week of June 12th, 2006

and will end the week of July 17th, 2005.  There will be no camp on Tuesday, July 4th, but will resume on Wednesday, July 5th, 2006.  Each camp will run Monday through Friday mornings from 8:30 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and begin at the Bedford High School Parking Lot.  Each mini-camp is designed to provide participants exposure, fundamental instruction

and game like experiences in a variety of activities.


Once again swimming lessons will be offered and are being given at Shawnee State Park. Lessons will be given for 1 hour per day over a two-week period. 

The other hour will include an organized activity for your child to enjoy

at the Bedford Middle School.  Classes offered include pre-beginner, beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate.  Higher-level courses will be offered based on interest and availability of instructors.

***Again in 2006: at no extra cost, a daily lunch will be served

for the children attending the Mini Camps,

the lunch is being offered thru a government grant.


There is a $5.00 registration fee for each child.

You may send the Registration Form and $5.00 to the

Bedford Parks and Recreation Office, P.O. Box 475, Bedford, PA 15522,

no later than Friday, May 26, 2006.


Please refer to the bus schedule listed on the back of this page.  When the weather forces the cancellation of activities for the day, the local radio stations are notified

by 7:15 AM to make announcements.  All activities are cancelled on these days.


Please refer to the listing of mini-camps on the registration sheet

to determine the activities that are available to your child.

Please keep a record for yourself below of the dates and mini-camps that your child had pre-registered for and make every effort to see that your child attends all the mini-camps they have signed up for so that our office can plan efficiently.  Our office does not confirm your child’s registration.

Two bus routes have been established to accommodate

those students who live the greatest distance away from the school.

Please be patient waiting on the bus, as there may be road construction.



Busses will make scheduled runs and arrive at Bedford High School at 8:30 AM each day of the week.  Those participating in swimming and bowling will be transported from BHS to Shawnee State Park and the Elks via the bus.  The bus routes have been established to accommodate as many people as possible.  Students may ride the bus to participate in any of the supervised mini-camps offered, or parents wishing to transport may drop students off at the parking lot located beside the Bedford High School. By reviewing the bus routes estimate the time that the bus will pass by your nearest pick up point. 

***Any time that child rides a bus to our mini-camps and is NOT using the bus to travel home please provide the bus driver with a written note.
