Another great summer is in the books for Swarthmore Recreation Association’s Day Camp.
Summer 2016 was filled with many fun activities for our campers, as well as giving something back to those who serve our wonderful community.
We would not have been able to complete such a successful camp without the helping hands of Dan Shaffer, Bill Kane, Joyce Perry and all of our amazing staff.
This summer we were all about giving back. Together, as a camp, we collected over 350 pounds of canned goods to donate to Philabundance. We would like to thank all the children and families involved in bringing in these donations.
Campers in groups K through 3-6 were involved in writing thank you and appreciation letters to our local Swarthmore Police officers and firefighters.
The children were able to meet the great Elsa from Frozen during our Disney-Sing-Along event directed by Liam Shaffer.
Meanwhile, our sports camp enjoyed weekly trips including bowling, Sky Zone, and mini-golf, as well as keeping cool with our waterslides.
Once again SRA would like to thank everyone involved in making this camp so successful, and we cannot wait for what Summer 2017 has to offer!
