Kids’ Club is again providing scholarships to the Village of Tarrytown’s Day Camp. This program provides engaging summer fun to over 80 campers entering grades 1-6. Activities take place at Washington Irving School, but also include pool and playground visits, and trips to Splashdown Water Park, Rye Playland, the Norwalk Aquarium and more.
For our visit, we observed a number of activities around the spacious W.I. campus. We visited the Art Room, for example, where 6th graders made paper and balsa wood airplanes, as well as weaving lanyards. Next door held the Game Room, where 4th and 5th grade campers played tabletop games, and, as a special treat, one teacher who is also a professional cosmetologist provided beauty school practice heads for hair and makeup applications. And in another classroom, 1st and 2nd graders were treated to a visiting Animal Show. Rounding out our tour was a visit to the gymnasium, where ball games, hula-hoops and hockey sticks were put to good use by the 3rd graders. Our only disappointment was missing the Magic Show, which we heard was amazing! All in all, it was great to see so many children enjoying a day of learning, creativity and fun.
