Because we still have over 35 spaces remaining in our summer day camp program, the Town of Newfield has extended the deadline for camp registrations and payments.

We are also excited to announce that scholarship funding is available due to the generous support of the following organizations:

  • Tompkins Community Foundation
  • Newfield Lions Club
  • Community Good Neighbor Fund (CGNF)

The program cost, without a scholarship, is $720 for one child and $600 for each additional child.  We encourage families to apply for scholarships if they need assistance with the program cost.  Simply complete the last page of the summer camp registration form with your request.

Applications and details are available at Summer_Camp_2022_Application OR hard copies are available at Newfield Town Hall and the library. There will be a waiting list after 80 children have applied.

If you have any questions, please contact the Recreation Department by email at, or Lauren Schumacher at lschumacher@newfieldschools

ADULT RECREATION PROGRAMS:  Adult Volleyball, and Adult Basketball Programs.


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
