Bigger, better and greener

The Brooklyn Paper

Now in its second year, The Prospect Park Youth Council’s free Summer on the Green Program is bigger, better, more educational and even more fun.

Prospect Park staff and Youth Council members will be on hand to supervise children as they participate in arts & crafts, team-building workshops, conflict resolution workshops, gardening, drama, nature tours, explorations of the Park, and running through the sprinklers on the lawn.

Summer on the Green is open to children ages 5-15. Individual children as well as day camp/care groups are welcome, but all children must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or camp counselors.

Summer on the Green runs through August 15, Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The program is free. The location is The Prospect Park Youth Resource Center in Bowling Green Cottage at the Prospect Park Parade Ground, on the corner of Caton and Coney Island avenues. Call 718-854-4901 for more information.

The Prospect Park Youth Council is comprised of young people ages 14-19, who represent schools, organizations, programs, and youth throughout Brooklyn. Teens joining the Youth Council must complete intensive leadership training, and then are challenged to design and implement their own public programs, such as events for Earth Day cleanups and a summer Cultural Mix.

Teens interested in learning more about the Prospect Park Youth Council can call the Youth Programs Manager at 718-854-4901.
