Summer camps have been fun escapes for kids to enjoy warm-weather activities and make new friends.
Covid got in the way last summer but with restrictions easing, the YMCA is bringing back a bunch of its popular camps.
Chris Calliari, the director of the Moshannon Valley branch of the Centre County YMCA, says sign-ups have been off the charts.
“As soon as we opened back up, I mean we went right through the roof for programming. Kids want to…parents want their kids out and involved.
Now, with kids (age) 12 and under, they still got to wear the masks and teachers or instructors who are with them still have to wear the masks because they’re not vaccinated,
the kids (age) 12 and under can’t be vaccinated, but um its, we have no lack in that.”
