NORWICH – The YMCA will be starting up its nine-week-long run of hosting Day and Teen Camp at the grounds of Camp Thompson in Smyrna next week.
“I want to personally welcome parents and children to the 2007 Day and Teen Camp programs. Children and camp are truly a passion of mine,” said YMCA Camp Director Rhett Genung.
This year’s program – the YMCA’s 39th annual – will have theme weeks. “Each week there is a different theme. Activities for that week will revolve around that theme,” said Genung.
The program is divided into separate age groups, 5 to 6, 7 to 8, 9 to 10 and teen camp 11 to 16. This allows the camp to offer more age- appropriate activities.
