Eight-Year-Olds Can Experience Overnight Camping Program

The Oswego City-County Youth Bureau is sponsoring a special first-time camping program for 8-year-olds, or children who will complete second grade in June, Thursday and Friday, June 28 and 29.

The two-day/one-night program at Camp Hollis is designed to offer children who are first-time campers a taste of residential camping while keeping the time away from home to a minimum. The camp will offer traditional camping programs such as swimming, arts and crafts, nature walks, campfire sing-a-longs and sports. Nutritious meals and snacks will be provided.

Camp Hollis is owned and operated by the County of Oswego and is located off Lake Shore Road in the Town of Oswego.

The registration fee is based on family income. For more information and an application, visit the Camp Hollis Web site at www.oswegocounty.com/youth/hollis and access the "Eight year old application," or contact the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau at 349-3451.
