S.P. Offers Holiday Events and Camps
The Southern Pines Recreation and Parks Department is offering several holiday-related events and camps for local residents.
"Due to the initial success of Fun Camp for Year Round School students, we have added a new session right before the holiday break," says Program Coordinator Sue Gillis.
Dec. 18-21 and Jan. 2-5 are the next sessions for Fun Camp specifically designed for children ages 5 (currently attending kindergarten) through 13.
The camp runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Train House. A later pickup time of 5:30 p.m. is available for an additional fee. The camp features games, sports, arts and crafts, trips, and innovative activities.
"Take advantage of our early-bird registration of $65 for residents ($130 for non-residents)," says Gillis.
The next installment of mini-camps is the Active Kids Camp for children ages 8-12 that features fitness fun -- muscles, target heart rate, yoga, pilates, dance, step aerobics -- all rolled into one high-energy camp.
"Instructor Ms. AnnMarie taught fitness fun to our day campers this summer, and they had an absolute blast," says Gillis.
