2 more scholarships were presented for 2 weeks of full-day summer camp in the month of July. Recipients were given a choice between SRAC and Morgan's Gymnastics. They chose Morgan's. Participates utilized gym equipment to build strength as well as self confidence. Children also were involved in crafts, games, and outdoor/indoor activities, Class lessons included obstacles, flexibility training, and various conditioning circuits. Camp was held from 7:00 am until 5:30 pm.
This month three more children were given scholarships for private swimming lessons at Johnston HealthQuest. Children attended five 30-minute lessons, once a week. At the end of five lessons, they were able to swim independently with rhythmic breathing and how to float on their back. A gracious "Thank you" to the staff at HealthQuest for your patience and support!
Are you ready for some football? One child received a scholarship for Flex Football sponsored by Smithfield Parks and Recreation. Flex football is a tackle free sport and children will wear shoulder pads and soft helmets. Play will stop on two hand touch. Practice will begin in August.
