Summer is not just a time for vacations and goofing around for kids on the Kenai Peninsula. It's a time for having fun and learning new skills as well, thanks to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula. "We have so many fun events and activities planned. We have scheduled nature walks, arts & crafts, and field trips. We are having an Art Specialist coming in to teach different art techniques. Geologist Ray Hamby will again take us on a hike in Anchor Point to gather fossils and on top of all this we will play many sports and games too!" said Club Director Karen Strash.
According to summer session #1 participant Alena Dahlgren, the subject of this year's program is under the water, and she is writing an original creative story about a jelly fish. Kami Cockroft was writing her story about the light and the dark side of the ocean, while Delany Bowman's story was taking shape around a sea turtle named Larry, "He lives in Sydney Australia and then there are these races that he goes to and he has already won two of them so he's pretty fast for a turtle," explained Delany.
There were about 85 students registered for session one at Redoubt Elementary School. The Soldotna Summer Clubhouse at Redoubt Elementary session two will run through July 30th, and registration for the third session which will be held at the Kenai Club house only is still available. For more information about summer learning fun at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula call Karen Strash at 260-4333, or 394-6983.
