“You’re going to hear me say two things, ‘Watch the tail,’ and ‘You’re working yarn,’” said Nicole Christensen to her Knitting Camp students.
The Knitting Camp for kids ages 7 to 12 is just one of the many Newtown Parks and Recreation summer programs. The camp ran from Monday, June 23, to Friday, June 27.
Kids who took the camp picked out their own color yarn, learned how to put stitches on their needles, and were taught how to cast on.

As volunteers put the final touches on a hay-hunt, other helpers at the Saturday, October 26, “Howl-o-ween” canine costume party readied additional stations. The family event was sponsored by Newtown Parks and Recreation, and benefited the Friends of Newtown Park and Back and was held on the Fairfield Hills Campus.
Activities included a relay race, a haystack treasure hunt, a hot dog toss, and a “tic-tac-paw.”
