A local summer camp promising to return your child "dirty, tired, and hungry", will receive a facelift courtesy of a new camp director.
Mike Lovett, the new director of the Clinton YMCA Camp Osage, hopes to bring back the excitement associated with attending summer camp. Every week of camp will have a theme and each day will have a specific structure.
Lovett indicates that he has trained his camp counselors to be "paid campers." They will interact with the campers as much as possible. Campers can expect a lot of team building and problem solving activities in the first couple weeks of camp.
Lovett hopes to get parents involved with the camp without them actually being at camp. Lovett indicates that he and his counselors will maintain and frequently update social media pages to keep parents informed. They will also introduce Friday night camp outs.
Making Camp Osage a place for everyone is a goal that Lovett has for the summer. He hopes to have activities that appeal to everyone so that everyone can enjoy the summer.
The cost to attend is $30 a day and $130 for a week for members, and $43 or $185 a week for non members with scholarships available. For more information, visit clintoncommymca.org.
