Splash and Dash Summer Day Camp is committed to providing enjoyment to children and has been an area favorite for several years running. With locations in New Windsor, Cornwall, and Harriman, they offer a range of activities for your youngster, to include swimming, sports, crafts, trips, and much more.
They are also very responsive to the community as they offer a scholarship program for working families who don’t qualify for DSS, but who may need some help with the camp costs. These scholarships are funded by their aptly titled “Cell Phones for Camp Scholarships” program. 100% of the proceeds go to fund the scholarships, not only helping area children who otherwise might not be able to enjoy Splash and Dash, but also helping the environment by collecting used cell phones.
The first open house is scheduled for Jan 13th, 2011, 6:15pm at Splash and Dash New Windsor, so get in before the spaces fill up. For more info call (845) 561-4700 ext. 2, or visit them on the web.
There is a great new show that I started watching on the Style Network called Too Fat for Fifteen. It’s a reality show following a group of overweight students at the Wellspring Academy in North Carolina and the struggles they face on their weight loss journeys. The show is filled with a lot of insight on what it is like to be overweight and a teenager. The family dynamics are especially interesting. The parents featured on the show seem to be nothing more than supportive of their children. However, I read an article today that said even parents of overweight children occasionally discriminate against them. For example, they may be less likely to help pay for their college education or a new car. What are your thoughts?
