JOPLIN, Mo. — Still trying to figure out what you’ll do with your kids this Summer?

The Joplin Family Y is offering Summer day camp for kids ages five through 12. And officials say there are some new features for the youngsters at camp this year.

Audrey Johnson, Director of School-Age Services, Joplin Family Y, said, “This year we have incorporated, due to a grant, we incorporated swimming lessons, and so that will be part of the activities that is not an additional fee.”

This is also the first year the Y is licensed as a child care facility. Camp participants will have a wide variety of options to go along with the S.T.E.M. activities and arts and crafts sessions taking place in the afternoons.
