Summer is almost here. For children who are looking for activities to keep them occupied during the long summer vacation, the Carbon County Recreation has the answers. In fact, the recreation center has a wide variety of programs and activities for children of all ages.

A summer sports camp has been scheduled for children age five to 11. Baseball camp will run June 17-27, soccer camp from July 8-18, and basketball camp will run from August 5-15. This is an opportunity for little athletes to get all of the playing time he or she needs.

Each camp session will be held at Creekview Elementary. Baseball and soccer camp will be held in conjunction with county rec's day camp, so children will also get a lunch. No lunch will be provided at the basketball camp.

The sports camps will stress the fundamentals of each sport while teaching rules, sportsmanship, and interaction with other children and adults.

Assistant director of recreation Frank Ori explains, "this is something that every child should experience. Sports are so much more than just winning and losing. We teach kids how to play a game, and in many cases, those athletic experiences can be related to real life. It is also a great way to get your child off of the couch and away from the computer games."

Each camp is $25 or all three camps will cost $65. Each participant will also receive a t-shirt for each camp that they attend.

A summer day camp will also be held beginning June 3. Day camp is an exciting eight week activity for the youth in the community. The camps emphasis fun.

The children involved with the day camp will help the college write a children's book, make a reading video, and explore the art of pottery. This is only the beginning of the activities offered at day camp.

The day camp will run Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon at Creekview, and noon to 3 p.m. at Sally Mauro. The fee for the day camp program is $96 for the entire eight week program at either location, or $14 per week, or $4 a day. The fee also includes lunch and will not be refunded or credited.
