The Boardman Park hosted their 17th annual Adventure Day Camp on June 26.

Karen McCallum, the recreation director with the park, said that the camp is the largest it has ever been.

“This week was huge, we had over 111 students participate,” McCallum said.

The summer camp runs for two months, with students able to buy for the full camp or on a weekly basis.

Students grades kindergarten through sixth grade gather at the park for games and other activities.

“This is one of our more popular annual events,” McCallum said. “We always hit our maximum number of participants.”

She said that there is one counselor for every 10 students.

New for this year McCallum said that twice a week the group Challenge Island will host a STEM activity for students.

“It really challenges their minds,” McCallum said. “Plus the experiments are a lot of fun.”

The group also goes on nature walks, learns about nature and science, and spends a majority of the their time outdoors.

Children are required to wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes, bring their own lunch and a water bottle, and a change of clothes.

For more information on the camp or to register for a week, contact McCallum at 330-965-0482.
