With the official arrival of summer later this week, one local agency is offering a summer day camp to keep children active.

Today (6/18/18) started the Lima Salvation Army's Summer Enrichment Day Camp. It offers children, ages 5 to 12, a place to spend the day and have a little fun. This year's theme is "Lessons from Dr. Seuss". The day also includes some educational elements such as working on social skills and a weekly visit to the library.

"So they get some reading in, we write in a journal some fun things, so they're getting some writing exercises, but they don't know it's remedial exercises, and that's what makes it fun because try to make learning fun and also keep their skills up so when they go back to school in September they're not relearning everything," explained Major Debbie Stacy, Lima Salvation Army.

You can still sign up for the camp at the Salvation Army. It's only $10 for the 6-weeks of camp and that includes lunch. This program along with other summer programs are supported by dollars from the Army's Red Kettle Campaign. Their Christmas in July Kettle Drive will begin July 9th. Their goal is $20,000 to supplement summer programming.
