2018 Safe Haven Summer Program Application

The Mount Vernon Youth Bureau would like to welcome children and parents to the 2018 Safe Haven Summer Program. Program participants must be between the ages of 6-12 as of June 2018 in order to attend. Attached, you will find a registration package which must be completed by June 16, 2018 in order for your child to be enrolled into the Safe Haven Summer Program.

In order for your child to be fully enrolled in the 2018 Safe Haven Summer Program, you must provide the following documents along with a completed application:
1. Proof of residence (i.e. utility bill/driver’s license, etc.)
2. Your child’s birth certificate
3. The attached medical form which must be completed by your child’s physician
4. Proof of child’s immunizations, completed by your physician, within the current school year or a recent sport medical clearance.

The early bird special ending March 30, 2018 for the six week program is $450.00 ($400.00 for additional siblings). After March 30, 2018 the fee will be $500.00 ($450.00 for additional siblings). Money order is the ONLY form of payment accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please note acceptance is on a first come first served basis. All applications MUST be completed with all the required documents in order for your child to be considered a Safe Haven Summer Program participant. Program fees will only be accepted between the hours of 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, Monday thru Friday. The fee is non-refundable and money orders should be made payable to the City of Mount Vernon-Youth Bureau. All fees include breakfast, lunch, two
T-shirts, arts & crafts, enrichment activities, games and admission fees for all field trips. Please note that this program’s low fee is a result of the financial support of the City of Mount Vernon, the Mount Vernon City School District, the Westchester County Youth Bureau and the Westchester County Board of Legislators.

The summer day program will be held at Columbus Elementary (455 N. High St Mt. Vernon, NY 10552). The six week program will begin Monday, July 9, 2018 and will conclude on Friday, August 17, 2018. Operating hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Please do not drop-off your child before 9 AM at the Youth Bureau or program location. We will not be responsible for your child before that time. We do not provide transportation to or from the program site; therefore, your child must be picked-up by 3:00 PM. If there are any delays on field trips due to traffic or late departures parents will be notified by the program directors/counselors as soon as possible.

Space is limited. Therefore, if your child is not picked up on time on two or more occasions, we will dismiss your child from the program and give the next child on the waiting list an opportunity to attend. In addition, if your child presents a behavioral problem, they will be discharged from the program immediately.

The Mount Vernon Youth Bureau prides itself on the safety of all participants and we respectfully request the full cooperation of the parents. If you have any questions regarding our program, please contact Keisha Kendley at the Youth Bureau (914) 665-2344.
