Camp Wesley ends with talent filled showcase

Every summer, Camp Wesley offers the children in our community eight weeks of fun and educational activities such as arts and crafts, physical fitness challenges and field trips. All Camp activities are offered to campers at no cost. A nutritious breakfast and lunch are served everyday by the Wesley Kitchen, funded by the USDA Summer Food Service Program.

 

This year, Camp Wesley served a total of 511 campers. Campers made daily visits to the neighborhood swimming pool, and participated in weekly field trips to attractions such as the San Antonio Botanical Garden, Witte Museum, San Antonio Museum of Art, Imax Movie Theater, Ripley's Believe It or Not, and to the Second Baptist Church Community Center for bowling.

Campers were also provided with free backpacks, a 2013 camp T-shirt and cap, and a souvenir water bottle.

The first four-week session ran from June 10th to July 5th and the second session ran from July 8th to August 2nd. Camp Wesley closed out with a talent show where campers were able to show off their dancing skills, routines and favorite interests.
