HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's Department of Recreational Sports and Wellness
is hosting the second annual "Camp Rec Spring Break," a four-day camp April 1-4.
Created for children ages 5 to 12, the camp is an option for parents who have children out of school that week.
Scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, Camp Rec. will have a variety of activities planned throughout the week and will take place in the Pennington Student Activity Center, located at the corner of University Avenue and General Pershing Avenue. Amy Oberschmidt, assistant director of Guest Services, said activities include outdoor adventures, field day games, arts and crafts, health and fitness talks, relay races, a talent show, water fun, a quiz bowl and pizza day.
"We are excited to once again offer Camp Rec to parents, and our only disappointment is our inability to staff two Camp Recs due to our students' busy school schedules prior to Southeastern's spring break" said Oberschmidt. "With its highly qualified professional and student staff, Southeastern's Recreational Sports and Wellness Department is able to provide a very structured camp experience that includes loads of fun and a healthy dose of wellness education."
Oberschmidt said registration for Camp Rec. includes breakfast, lunch and snacks each day, and early camper drop-off and pick-up are provided at 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., respectively.
Registration for the camp is $100, with a $10 discount for each additional sibling per family. To register or for more information, call 985-549-5591 or visit the membership desk at the Pennington Student Activity Center.
