Page 4B EDUCATION Hays Free Press July 31,2013 Summer Camp Spotlight: Kyle Parks and Recreation Camps Summer campers at the Kyle Parks & Rec program enjoyed indoor and outdoor activites, field trips and swimming. BY KIM HILSENBECK eing a voyager or an adventurer probably sounds like a fun summer activity- and for kids who participated in the Kyle Parks and Recreation Department summer camp, it was. The participants enjoyed weekly field trips, swimming, games and art projects. Held at Wallace Middle School, the campers also played daily at Gregg-Clarke Park and swam twice a week at the Kyle Pool. Field trips to local zoos, bowling alleys, ice-skating rinks and more provided fun and often educational weekly excursions. Identical eight-year-old twins Lily and Hannah Scott- Medlock said they had a lot of fun at camp. "We get to go a lot of places," Lily said. The girls said they liked going to the zoo and they were looking forward to seeing Despicable Me 2 at the movie theater later that day. "I like going to the pool," Hannah said. Fantasia Ramos, 8, likes all the field trips and playing fun games such as Sharks and Minnows and Under the Sea. The Adventure Campers, for sixth through ninth graders, enjoyed field trips to places such as Paradise Fun Center, a Riviera Party Boat, Springloaded, Blazer Tag and Texas State High Ropes. The Voyager campers, who are in second through fifth grade, enjoyed field trips to Aquarena Springs, Austin Science & Nature Center, Sunset Lanes, Landa Park, Blazer Tag, Gatti-Town and Wonder World and occasionally to the movies for some air- conditioned entertainment. In addition to the trips and activities, "The camp counselors are cool," Fantasia said. PHOTOS BY KIM HILSENBECK ..I- +
