Registration is open for the Clinton YMCA's annual summer program, Camp Osage.
On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, Executive Director Rennie Cluver told Regional Radio News they are looking forward to a more normal year with fewer restrictions, more kids and more opportunities for fun in the great outdoors.
The Y recently changed a policy they were going to enter the summer with and that is registration ahead of a week of camp will not be necessary. Cluver explains they were going to ask parents and guardians to register kids the week prior for their attendance but have since gone back on that requirement.
While Cluver is thankful there are more things happening this summer, like returning to Weldon Springs, he also notes there will be some restrictions in place. He also anticipates more activities being added to the calendar as the year goes along.
In recent years, Y staff have worked to be inclusive to children of all interests. Cluver explains they understand not all kids are 'get outside and get dirty' type of children and they want to make sure everyone has a good time doing the things they enjoy.
Camp Osage kicks off Tuesday, June 1. Cluver says registration is ongoing. He encourages parents that will have kids that regularly attend Camp Osage to consider registering their child for child membership through the Y. It will save them money over the course of the summer.
