Summer Day Camp starts!

If you are impatiently waiting for the Summer Olympics to start, go to Sapulpa. The Sapulpa Boys and Girls Club kicked off their second week of Summer Day Camp, called “2012 Summer Games” today.  Administrative assistant Keli Johnson said they have some special field trips planned. One of them is to go to the Jasmine Moran Museum in Seminole, along with the Sand Springs Boys and Girls Club. I had not heard of the museum but after reading about it I can’t wait until my grandson Derek is old enough to enjoy it. It has an imaginary town where children can role play a variety of careers, including being a surgeon! (I hope the scalpels are made of rubber.) 
Another special field trip will be cruising on the Cherokee Queen on Grand Lake. The club kids will also attend a basketball clinic taught by the Tulsa Shock. The camp costs $75 a week, plus the $35 annual membership and a $10 registration fee. Kids should be from first grade to eighth grade to register. Call the club at 918-224-4415.

The Sand Springs Boys and Girls Club starts Summer Day Camp Mon., May 29. Sand Springs Club Director Greg Parker is in Boys and Girls Club training for four days, so administrative assistant Mary Bechtold gave me the scoop. “The Sand Springs centennial is this year, so we are calling our Day Camp Centennial,” she said. Every week will have a different theme, such as Western Week and Patriotic Week. To enroll in Summer Day Camp, kids need to have completed kindergarten and can be up to age 14. The cost is $90 a week, plus a $35 annual membership and a $15 registration fee. Call the club at 918-245-2237.

Summer Day Camp  will start Thursday (May 24) at the Broken Arrow Boys and Girls Club. So many kids attend the BA Day Camp that they are split in two groups; ages kindergarten through 5th grade and ages sixth through eighth grade. The cost is $100 a week, plus the $35 annual club membership fee, plus a $10 registration fee.

For the younger BA campers, Janis has plans for go-carting and other energy-burning activites. The older kids will get to go to Claremore to go on a scavenger hunt at the Will Rogers Museum and to Western Hills Guest Ranch at Ft. Lake Gibson for horseback riding. But all that sounds tame compared to something I haven’t done since high school, “Bash A Car!” (My husband Gary is going to disagree with that. Sorry about the Camry, honey.) The BA campers will go to Rock Philbrook Day August 14, along with the two other suburban clubs. Janis is cutting off registration at 150 kids and 100 have signed up already. For more information, call the BA club at 918-258-7545.
Tune in tomorrow for Summer Day Camp at the urban clubs.
