YMCA offers summer programs

HARRODSBURG - Wilderness Trace Family YMCA plans a Summer Day Camp program for children ages 5 through 12 years old and is offered in Mercer and Boyle counties during June and July. The program is offered 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays.

The Mercer County program will be located at the YMCA in Harrodsburg running from June 7-July 21. The Boyle County program will be July 6-23 at Woodlawn Elementary School.

The 2004 curriculum is titled "Camp Character" and is designed to keep children active while providing a safe, fun environment for learning. Weekly themes are the guiding force for daily activities. Campers will work on projects in the community, visit senior citizens and deliver cards and crafts to extended care patients. The YMCA believes that by sharing with others to make a difference, the children will learn to become caring, responsible young men and women that take pride in giving back to the community.

The Wilderness Trace family YMCA also offers summer swim lessons to children ages 3 through 12 years old. This program teaches skills that enable children to swim safely and enjoy this fitness sport for a lifetime. All students are skill tested then assigned to a proper class level. Swim lessons are offered in three convenient sessions and begin June 7.

For more information on summer swim lessons or to register children for either summer camp program, call (859) 734-9622 or (859) 236-0359.
