Farewell from Kym
Hello Milton friends!
I will be retiring from the position of Milton Recreation Director and my last day will be Friday, September 4. Upon retirement, I look forward to taking some time to chill and reflect and see what's next for me professionally (and visit my kids in chicago and Charlotte, NC often!) and I am so excited to watch the future of Milton Recreation unfold with someone brand-new at the helm. The Town of Milton is currently interviewing candidates for the Recreation Director position, and Ben is staying on as Assistant Recreation Director. Thank you, Milton, for the wonderful and amazing journey throughout the past 13 years - I have loved every minute and I am so proud of our Town!
Kym Duchesneau, Recreation Director

Spring & Summer Program Guide
After much consideration, Milton Recreation has made the decision to not release a Spring & Summer Program Guide this year, due to the uncertainties faced with the COVID-19 crisis. Instead, we will continue to update our online portal, as well as share programs, events, and summer camps information via Facebook, our eNewsletter, and other outlets. Thank you for your understanding!
We recognize parent & guardians additional concerns due to the COVID-19 crisis, and will be following all current State of Vermont guidelines to keep campers, staff, and residents safe while having fun this summer. Specific precautions and camp details will be communicated to parents/guardians via email.
Precautions taken may include: staff, campers and others being required to wear masks and/or maintain physical distancing while at camp and during drop-off/pick-up, required temperature checks and/or answering and agreeing to health questions at check-in daily, frequent hand sanitizing, and more.
Thank you for your support of Milton Recreation. We look forward to a very fun and safe summer!
