North East Westchester Special Recreation

Summer Programs for Adults and Young Adults
June 19, 2019 to September 7, 2019


Each participant in a North East program must have a current Participant Information Form on file. Participants presently enrolled in a North East program may register using the Program Registration Form below.

Registration for in-district residents begins immediately. Participants are enrolled in programs on a first-come, first-served basis. Many of our programs fill quickly so please register as soon as possible.

Registration for out-of-district residents begins on June 10th.
You may send your registration to us prior to that date and we will hold it until the 11th. At that time, out-of-district residents will be accepted in the order the registrations were received by our office, as room permits.

While North East is able to provide transportation for several programs, please consider car pooling and para-transit when possible.

We will provide you with the names of co-participants in any program for which you plan to arrange car pooling. Parents wishing their name withheld from circulation must indicate this on the registration form.

North East staff have been instructed to wait with participants at pick up locations until parents/guardians arrive. When you are late it creates a problem as we have to pay staff for their time. For this reason, we will charge $10 for every 15 minutes you are late in picking up.

Para-transit is public, curb to curb, transportation alternative for adults and young adults with differing abilities. Para-transit does provide services to and from recreation programs. Para-transit is especially available for recreation in the evenings and on weekends. Contact the Office for the Disabled at 914-995-2957.

Persons applying to a North East Program for the FIRST TIME must go through our INITIAL INTAKE PROCESS. This includes completion of a Participant Information Form and a personal consultation with one of our full time staff to examine and plan for the program needs of the applicant and his/her family.

At least every three years thereafter, consultations may be arranged to review the needs and interests of each participant and their family. However, additional consultations may be promptly scheduled when a specific concern or difficulty has been identified.

We are continually assessing our programs and our participants needs. We reserve the right to change and/or recommend placement as we deem appropriate. We will discuss this with those involved however the final decision will be made by North East.


We would like to support your child’s interest in participating in your local community recreation department programs. We would be available to: assess the appropriateness of an intended placement into program, visit the participant at the program to ensure continued success, or consider providing a staff member to attend the program with the participant for a limited time.

A moderate fee structure exists for most programs. These fees are a small percent of our actual program costs. All program fees must be paid in full with the enclosed registration form unless you have been approved for a payment plan. When necessary, payment schedules may be arranged, and partial scholarships are available on a limited basis to those participants in the North East district. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship or payment plan, please call our office immediately to request the necessary paperwork.

Unfortunately we will have to charge you $20.00 for any checks returned to us for insufficient funds. This is the fee we incur from the bank for this error.


Peanut butter sandwiches and other nut products should not be sent to our programs. We have a number of participants who are extremely allergic to these foods and we are interested in their safety. Since we cannot regulate the outside world, if your son/daughter is expected to be in the community and has this allergy, please send their epiPen.

If a program needs to be cancelled, normally due to poor weather conditions, an announcement will be made on WHUD 100.7 radio and on their web site. You may also access this information by calling our office. If a cancellation must be made at the "last minute" we will attempt to call all program participants. If a program is cancelled, we will attempt to reschedule it if possible.

* A program is cancelled before it begins due to insufficient enrollment.
* A participant is on a waiting list
* Medical reasons cause the participant to stop attending the program. A physician’s note is requested to verify the illness.
* In the event that the participant attended the program prior to requesting a refund, a prorated portion of the program fee will be refunded.
