Three-day summer day camp

Family Recovery Center’s Education Department will hold a three-day summer day camp at the Columbiana Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Independence Square location for children in Wellsville and surrounding communities from 10 a.m. to noon today through Friday. The event will offer children fun and unique experiences with an opportunity for social emotional development, to meet new friends, discover new interests and create summer memories.

The Family Recovery Center’s Education Department will have prevention educators on site to meet children at the Independence Square playground. Although activities are geared to elementary and preschool ages, children of all ages are welcome.

Free games, activities and snacks will be offered to all children in attendance.

“This is an exciting and fun way for our prevention educators to stay active and involved with the children in our community during the summer. Typically they are implementing the Aiming High prevention education curriculum in the classroom during the school year and this offers them a way to stay connected with the children during the summer months,” says Joe Rawson, director of education and prevention services at Family Recovery Center.

Efforts are funded by the Columbiana County Mental Health & Recovery Services Board, and no preregistration is needed.
