Boardman Park is an adventure waiting to happen for children. Children attending Adventure Day Camp at the park learn about various subjects including science, sports, arts and crafts, creative arts and team building.

“It’s a diversity of activities throughout the summer,” said camp director Karen McCallum.

Also included are group activities, such as dodge ball and hikes in the woods. Once a week, for library day, children bring a book to read in the park.

“So they’re enjoying the nature as well as literacy,” McCallum said.

This year, for the first time, children will be in charge of their own “pizza garden” as part of the science program.

“They’ll learn to grow the various ingredients to make a pizza,” McCallum said.

Lanaya Childers of Texas is attending the camp for a month while she visits family.

“It’s pretty awesome,” Childers said. “You’re outside in nature and you also get to do what you want when there’s free time. And there are creative sections, and it also teaches you.”

Cameron Blackwell of Canfield said sports are his favorite part.

“I like playing capture the flag,” Blackwell said.

He has attended the camp in previous summers.

“It’s creative and it gives you something to do in the summer,” Blackwell said.

This is the first summer at the camp for Abbey Eash of Boardman.

“It’s fun,” Eash said. “We just took a nature hike.”

The nine-week camp began June 17. Children who have finished kindergarten through sixth grade may sign up for one week or more. It’s open to Boardman residents and non-residents.
