Impact Center's Mini Camp offers games and fun for kids

(Continued)

Cook said they’ve seen attendance rise from week to week. Last Wednesday, they saw about 40 kids.

Alisha’s sister, Victoria, 9, said she’d be “sleeping a lot, begging my mom to go swimming” if she wasn’t in camp.

She, too, is a fan of all the games like basketball and kickball.

Avery Cook, 9, said it’s a good time of day to have the activities; when it’s so hot outside. Most of their games have been in the center’s gymnasium.

Hip-hop class has been her favorite activity. That and meeting other kids.

“You get to see friends and make friends,” she said.

Buckskin Bikes will be sponsoring a ride on Wednesday. Wendy Cook said they’d have about eight bikes on hand for those kids who do not own any.

The camp is free to all the children and for school-age youth.
