OWO registration opens April 3
Summer camp at the Osborne-Warren-Oden Center is swiftly approaching as the weather gets warmer and school-age children crave summertime.
Registration for the OWO Summer Camp programs will be open April 3 for children ages 5-12.
Camp will be held May 30-July 28. Daily sessions are Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Director Heather Drinkard said the OWO can accept 100 campers, depending on the number of counselors. Applications for camp counselors are still being accepted.
“I have tons of activities planned for the kids this summer including field trips and a fundraiser for Feeding Families,” Drinkard said. “My goal is to keep them active and learning this summer while also having fun.”
Drinkard is in her first year in the director role having come to the OWO from the Hartselle Parks and Recreation department. She said she learned a lot about programming and planning activities there that have helped her transition to her new position.
“I am so excited about OWO and what we have to offer our community,” she said. “I can’t wait to meet all of our campers.”
More activities for adults, including painting classes and exercise classes, are on the horizon, Drinkard added. OWO will also offer an after-school program beginning in August.
It costs $50 to register and weekly tuition rates that include field trips cost $65.
