SEMINOLE – More than 250 children and teens earned their sporty wings as summer campers during the Seminole Recreation Center Complex’s 2004 program.

To celebrate the end of the summer program, in a recreational kind of way, the second annual Seminole camp biathlon was held on the morning of July 30.

The campers ran miles and swam yards, according to their ages and capabilities. Teens and counselors did a 1-mile run and 150-yard swim while campers younger than 7 zoomed through a one-half mile run and 50-yard swim.

According to Jim Sheets, recreation director, more than 100 participants finished the race and received an “Every Camper is a Winner” medal.

With the summer program completed, the staff will be performing much-needed maintenance at the center. Carpets will be cleaned, walls painted, and even the game room will get a much needed once over.

“The five teen leaders we had helping us this summer were really a big help,” said Dori Maxemow recreation supervisor. “We all had a great summer.”

She said the shaving cream day was a particularly, big hit with campers. Summers specialty camps included archery, basketball, cheerleading, magic, modeling and soccer.

While all the usual programs will be offered soon, new classes are on tap for September to include fencing, drum lessons and creative writing.
