Whether it was playing tennis, basketball or soccer, dancing, singing or acting — or just plain splashing around in the water — Wilson youth had plenty of opportunities to spend their summer break from school with a variety of activities.

The jumpers and rollers went to gymnastics camp. The wild ones went to wilderness survival camp.

Explorers were to fossil hunting and ocean exploration camp. Young biologists went to nature art camp, bug camp and snake camp.

Elementary and middle-schoolers had a choice of two engineering camps.

Those interested in the life on the farm had a choice of two farm-related camps.

Young artists had camps on silk scarf painting, visual arts and the performing arts.

Dancers had a choice of many camps, from ballet to clogging, tap to tumbling.

Actors had a choice of learning Shakespeare, practicing stage combat, creating their own play or working in the cast of a stage production.
