A local organization’s summer camp begins next week.
AOK, which stands for About Our Kids, has provided youth services to Lamar since 1999. This year’s camp will be a bit different than years past. The kids who are attending will be given more of an active role in adjusting their daily schedule.
“This summer’s camp is all youth-driven. So, the staff is going to be here but the kids are going to be the ones making the decisions and playing an active role in what they want to do and what they like to do. Everything is station-based,” says Jared Morey.
AOK will make frequent stops for the kids throughout the week at places like the Lamar Aquatic Park and Lamar Plaza Movie Theater. The official first day of the camp is May 21st.
