Camp Hollis Is For 'Kids' of All Ages
Oswego County's Camp Hollis hosts programs for the young and the young at heart. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario in the Town of Oswego, the facility will host a Senior Camping Program again this year.
On June 2 and 3, and again Sept. 8 and 9, campers may sign up for a fun-filled day of recreation for $10 or two days for $20. They also have the option of an overnight stay with their two-day registration price. Meals are included. Activities are designed to suit campers of all abilities from spectators to active seniors.
“Our senior camping events are very popular with residents,” said Jim Farfaglia, senior youth services specialist with the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau. “They are open to Oswego County residents age 50 and older and offer many fun activities, including archery, crafts, hiking, informational presentations and sing-alongs.”
The theme of this year's program, “Our Own Backyard,” celebrates local communities. Presentations and activities will feature locations throughout Oswego County.
The senior camping program is sponsored by Oswego County Parks and Recreation, a division of the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau, along with Oswego County Opportunities and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).
For more information or to register, call Farfaglia at the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau weekdays at 349-3451 or 1-800-596-3200 ext. 3451.
