Welcome to Medfield Parks & Recreation

Athletic Fields Update:
Coaches - The fields are still fragile.  Stay off the fields if you notice the following:

1. Your team is causing damage by ripping up the turf.
2. The turf is over saturated and unsafe causing players to slide or sink in the turf and mud.

If you must practice, play off the lined playing field and on the outer grass for drills etc.
Hopefully, the weather cooperates this weekend for your games.

Summer Camp Director Search

The Medfield Parks & Recreation Department is seeking a full-time Summer Camp Director (6 weeks M-F 8:00am-5:00pm).   The following position provides structure and support from the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Director of Parks and Recreation and the Program Coordinator and requires a creative, self-motivated individual to lead it.  Responsibilities include:  Direct the 5 day a week operation of the Summer Discovery Camp for 4-8 year olds. Duties include, but are not limited to, working closely with the public to ensure a quality summer camp experience; creating, planning, implementing a summer camp; training, scheduling, supervising and evaluating staff; and supervising daily themed activities.  We return an experienced staff and seek an energetic leader to oversee the daily operation of the camp.


The position pays well and will afford an opportunity to take a vacation at the end of the summer.  There is structure in place, however, there is also a lot of freedom/flexibility to create the programs and curriculum as well.  Please send a cover letter and resume to James Snyder, Director of Parks & Recreation at medfieldpr@gmail.com.  Open until Filled.
