Winter break for many local students just got way more exciting as Rome Floyd Parks and Recreation Department’s Camp Anthony series brings three day-camp opportunities for kids this holiday season.
The three camps will run from Dec. 19-22, Dec. 27-30 and Jan. 3. All camps start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 6 p.m.
The camps are for kids ages 5 to 15. It costs $80 for each of the December camps and $20 for the day camp on Jan. 3.
Camp activities include marshmallow roasting, a nature scavenger hunt, games played both indoors and outdoors, crafts and making gifts for parents, and a field trip to the ECO-Center.
“We keep them busy,” said Maria DeArmoun, camp coordinator. “These day camps during the holidays provide a service for parents who have to work while their kids aren’t in school. The kids have a safe place to go where they can be active and entertained. They get to interact with other kids and have fun.”
