Summer summer summertime….

The campers at the Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County spentĀ their summer staying healthy and active andĀ having loads of fun!
Summer CampĀ started on June 24th at both of our Clubhouses, and will run until August 30th.
Campers spent time at the Capitol City Farm in Trenton learning about vegetables and fruit crops; they tasted peaches, chives, cucumbers, tomatoes, and many more! Let’s just say that they were eager to have more! When they found out they could take some of the treats home, it was as if the stars were sparkling in their eyes.
AĀ local company volunteered and taught the kids about healthy living habits through pictionary and heads ups! The volunteers gaveĀ each camperĀ a Seed Kit to plant and grow at home. TheirĀ lesson was the proverbial icing on the cake because the kids made green galaxy smoothies in cooking!
Between the physical and healthy living activities, campers are staying active and having fun!
