YMCA hosting Spring Break camp


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Spring Break is quickly approaching for Wabash Valley kids and one local gym wants to make sure they have plenty to do.

The Vigo County YMCA is holding a Spring Break camp. Middle school students across the Wabash Valley are eligible to attend.

Students will be able to participate in many activities including swimming field trips and an open gym.

The cost to attend is $85 per week for members and $95 per week for non-members. Organizers say it’s important these kids are given something to do.

“There’s that need between those afternoon hours when kids start getting board they start getting into trouble.  They sit around and watch TV and play video games,” said Eleanor Ramseier, executive branch director YMCA. “And we thought we wanted to get them active.”

Camp hours will run from 11 a.m. through 6 p.m.
