First Adventure Camp Opens in Worcester County

Posted:
SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County Recreation & Parks will be offering an outdoors adventure camp for the first time this summer. This week-long camp is open to youth entering grades 1-8 and takes place at the Worcester County Recreation Center beginning Monday, July 14 from 1-4 p.m.

According to Recreation and Parks Supervisor Jennifer Stanvish, participants will explore the John Walter Smith Park grounds daily, enjoying all that the open spaces have to offer. Each child will receive a journal to document their experiences, through writing and drawing, throughout the week. Campers should dress accordingly to the weather for being outside.

"July is National Parks and Recreation Month," said Stanvish, adding the motto is "Out is in." The adventure camp will allow campers to explore and enjoy the outdoors. "A newly hired employee came up with the idea and we believe it will benefit many children," Stanvish said. 

Activities will include a visit from Zoo2U, bringing animals that are native to this area. Maryland Natural Resources Police will give a Water Wise program presentation including life jacket practice, and safety information about fishing, boating, and jet skiing. Campers will also be painting bird houses that they'll take home at the end of the week. Scavenger hunts and other nature games will also help pass the time.  

Financial aid is available for most youth programs to those that demonstrate a need. For more information call Lea Cataggio at (410) 632-2144, ext. 109 or email lcataggio@co.worcester.md.us.
