Final inspection

About 60 participating students marched in succession for final inspection before school officials and cadets.

The kids participated in sports, took survival classes, and learned how to shoot a rifle.

Photo by Jason Kaplan The heat and humidity, last week, made it feel more like a traditional summer. Children in the Kinderkamp and Summer Recreaton programs, like Lucy Scialpi, Ryan and Ellie Springer, and Jack Scialpi, enjoyed a refreshing dip in the kiddie pool, swimming and splashing each other.

Photo by Jason Kaplan Town campers were forced to spend Friday indoors due to the threat of thunderstorms. That didn’t dampen the kids’ spirits, however, as they found other things to do. They played basketball in the gymnasium, watched a movie, or worked on a puzzle. Colby Van Dam and Megan Maffei played a board game called “Name 5.”
