With almost two full weeks of summer under the belts of local youth, a local entity is well entrenched in their summer programming.
The Clinton YMCA's Camp Osage is their summer program that seeks to give area youth an outlet for safe fun and recreation during the summer months. Rennie Cluver is the Clinton YMCA Executive Director and explains the kids can participate in a number of activities on a daily basis geared towards their interests.
Camp Osage is essentially an all day opportunity for youth. Cluver explains it's flexible to the point they will help parents who may not work the usual 8 am to 5 pm shift.
Cluver indicates youth do not have to attend Camp Osage each day of the week, in fact they can come only on certain days or even last minute throughout the summer. They just ask you register your child with the YMCA.
The Y has various rates for daily or weekly Camp Osage attendance. To learn more, contact the YMCA at 935-8307 or stop in to their location at 417 South Alexander Street in Clinton.
