Kids can explore the outdoors at Y camps By BECKY BARCLAY The Goldsboro Family YMCA wants to make sure Wayne County youths have the best summer ever with its summer camps. The camps will offer an opportunity to explore the outdoors, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that will last a lifetime. "Summer is the ideal time for kids to get up, get out and explore," said Felisha Widener with the Y. "But for some kids, sum- mer means no access to recreational and education- al activities to help them learn, grow and thrive dur- ing out-of-school time. As a result, some kids can expe- rience learning loss and gain weight twice as fast than during the school year." Ms. Widener said attend- ing camps at the Y is one way children can keep their minds and bodies active. Summer camps can also ensure they stay engaged socially, physically and aca- demically throughout the summer. "In our youth summer camp, kids are in a wel- coming environment where they can belong, they're building relationships, developing character and discovering their poten- tial," she said. Summer camps are for youths ages 5 through 17 and include kindercamp, traditional camp and teen camp, with a wide range of activities, including weekly field trips, swimming, sports, crafts, free nutri- tious meals and more.
