Hello Newfield Families,

I hope you are all doing well at this time. I wanted to provide an update on Newfield Summer Day Camp.

Unfortunately, I have to make the toughest announcement that I’ve had to make during my time here at the Newfield Recreation Department, but the Town and Recreation Department have canceled summer camp for the 2020 season. With so many deadlines needing to be met and so many unknowns and with the school being shut down to the public and outside organizations, and social distancing requirements for large groups, we feel we have no choice but to cancel.

We want to give the counselors and families enough time to find other child care and work and we felt if we waited any longer that would be much harder down the road. I am truly sorry for this announcement and please know we had been working extremely hard here at the town to plan a summer camp for the kids daily since early February. The Recreation Department will work on developing recreation programs/activities that we may be able to offer this summer. We will be working with the Health department for guidelines on how to make this work. We want to be able to offer some activities this summer if it is deemed we can with proper protocols for the kids and families in this great community. Safety is everything in all decisions.
If you did already paid in full or the $100 deposit, refund will start being issued this Monday by mail.

If any of you have any questions please feel free to reach out at We will get through this, we are #NewfieldStrong. Hope to see all you very soon and please continue to be safe and healthy!

Austin J. Kuczek
(Recreation Supervisor)

ADULT RECREATION PROGRAMS: Please contact Recreation Director Austin Kuczek and he can help you get started with  Tai Chi, Adult Volleyball, and Adult Basketball Programs. All Adult programs are CANCELLED until September.

Welcome to the Town of Newfield Recreation Department.

We offer a variety of recreation opportunities for the community, and we are always looking to expand and improve our offerings.  Almost all of our recreation programs are held on Newfield Central School District grounds or inside the school’s facilities. Without the support from the school district many of our programs would not be possible. In any community, communication is key.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any ideas, questions or concerns by using the contact information at the bottom of this page.

Adult wellness programs will continue with open basketball in the HS Gym on Thursday evenings starting at 8 pm and Adult open volleyball on Wednesdays.

Contact for further information.


 Our department  thrives on community support. Support comes in multiple forms: grants, fundraising efforts, donations, as well as volunteering. Volunteers make our recreation department happen, and we are always looking for new volunteers to help with rec programs.  If you would like to volunteer to participate, lead or coach please contact us.  
The Newfield Recreation Department is proud to have the support of the United Way of Tompkins County
