16 youth attend free day camp PDF Print E-mail

A free day came for youth drew 16 youngsters out to Lake Salinda last Wednesday for a day of adventure.
Salem Parks and Recreation Director Denise Newkirk said this was the first time they’ve held the camp for free. In the past, there has been a fee for the camp and it is held at DePauw Park.
“We wanted a new spin on what we’ve already done,” she said.
Newkirk said the parks department has offered free swimming at the city pool and fishing clinics at the lake, but this was something different.
“We were looking at the need in the community for activities and this just seemed to fit,” she said.
Those who attended were served a free lunch, went on a hike on the new walking trail at Lake Salinda, made crafts, learned how to make a tent out of a tarp hung between two trees and made bows and arrows.
“They also were taught some outdoor safety tips,” said Newkirk.
Also helping that day were Children’s Library Director Donna Hurst and City Police Officer Roy Overshiner. Four other adult volunteers were there to assist in the activities.
Free sunscreen and mosquito repellent was also furnished that day.
Newkirk said she had a very good response to the event and hopes to do it again next year, with even more activities.
In fact, she said Overshiner has already come up with some ideas for next year and JR Martin, at WSLM, has expressed interest in being involved, teaching the children different trapping exercises.
Each child who attended received a free days’ swim pass.
Newkirk said free swims will be held for the public Tuesday and Thursday, Aug. 2 and 4, from 3 to 5:30 p.m.
For more information about activities offered through the parks and recreation department, call 883-2895 or visit the city’s Web site at www.cityofsalemin.com.
