The Colleton County Recreation Center’s “Summer Camp at the Rec” concluded Thursday July 27 with the Summer Finale held at Colleton County Middle School’s mini-auditorium. The camp, designed for ages 4-12, was a combination of education and fun with organized music, writing, arts and crafts, combined with a mixture of sports, movies and field trips.
Last week’s program, “Learning Today, Winning Tomorrow,” consisted of a processional, flag salute, a moment of silence and the singing of the National Anthem. Campers were divided into three groups, with the youngest group performing “My ABC’s” and a coordinated dance to “You Forgive Me.” The two older groups spoke about their experiences at summer camp and then performed dances to “JuJu on the Beat” and “Cupid Shuffle.”
Following the presentation of student portfolios, containing samples of their work over the summer, final remarks were given by Darlene Cummings, camp director. The camper’s final selection for the evening was a remix, “All I Do Is Win.”
