Library Fun Camp
The theme for the 2011 Lighthouse Point Library Camp, sponsored by Balkan & Patterson, LLP, was Fun & Fitness. Mornings were spent learning about health and nutrition with assistance of teachers from Mad Science. Jill Black, a certified physical education instructor, arrived in the early afternoon each day to lead the children in outdoor games and exercises.
In addition to health and fitness, Librarian, Doreen Gauthier arranged for the campers to be treated to a special presentation every afternoon. The presentations included:Therapy Dogs from the Humane Society; Safety Tips—A Child is Missing; Sea Turtle Rescue; Internet Safety by the Lighthouse Point Police Department; and Water Slide/Spray courtesy of the Lighthouse Point Fire Department.
Special thanks goes out to all those volunteers who agreed to share their time and expertise with the children at camp as well as to The Cold Stone Creamery in Pompano for providing the children with free ice cream on Friday afternoon.
