EECM's Summer Day Camp is in full swing and everyone is having a blast! Last week, we began the 2011 camp experience learning about ourselves and each other. Campers joined their groups, met their counselors, and chose clinics to attend. The overall theme for this year's camp is "Lessons from the Playground" which will teach our youth how to make wise decisions when presented with tough life choices.
This week, the focus turns to the importance of Self-Assertiveness. Campers will learn how to be confident in themselves and use wisdom when asserting their individuality in today's communities. This is critical for success within the urban culture for today's youth.
As camp moves forward, campers will continue learning dances, music, and various acting techniques. Art projects will consist of fuse bead key rings, beaded animals, photo frame magnets, animal masks, wooden art and miniature flying saucers.
Activities throughout the week will include The Carnegie Science Center, The Children's Museum, Laurel Caverns, bowling, and swimming.
