Thank You

Somers Recreation Department would like to extend a sincere "THANK YOU" to the hundreds of volunteers who contribute thousands of hours to help make recreation in Somers function and flourish.  Somers Recreation Department programs and classes, our youth sports teams and leagues, and the outstanding special events offered in town are the result of community-wide assistance and support.  Recreation in Somers is truly a collaborative effort, and the hard work of our community members results in outstanding and diverse recreational opportunities for our residents.


Send a Child to Camp Fund
Somers Recreation & Leisure Services works to support camps in their efforts to provide camp scholarships for families who may not be able to fund a camp experience for their child. 


Somers Recreation believes strongly in the value of the camp experience and wants to ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend camp.  We understand that many families cannot afford to send their child to camp. This is why we have established the Send a Child to Camp Fund as an opportunity for caring individuals or organizations who also believe in the value of camp to support camp scholarships at Somers Recreation's camps.

Refund Policy

The Somers Recreation Department will provide a full refund when a program is cancelled. All refund requests for a program that has not been cancelled must be submitted at least one week prior to the start of the program. Refunds will not be issued once a program begins unless there is an injury or illness which prohibits active participation in the program and is documented by a physician. No refunds will be issued without a Refund Request Form. If a refund is granted, the amount will be pro-rated to reflect the number of remaining days in the program from the date the Refund Request was submitted.
