Youth Services will present its Summer Camp Fair

BRATTLEBORO—Youth Services will host its Annual Summer Camp Fair on Friday, April 6, on Gallery Walk Night, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the River Garden in downtown Brattleboro.

Many summer camp providers will supply activities and entertainment for children. The public is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to arrange a fun-filled summer while being entertained. The event will include a free drawing for $100 credit toward a camp of the winner’s choice — and free balloons.

“Our Summer Camp Fair gives parents and grandparents the chance to ask questions and register their children for many of the camps listed in our Summer Resources Calendar in one convenient location,” Russell Bradbury-Carlin, Youth Services’ executive director, said in a news release.

Parents will be able to pick up information about and register their children for nearly two dozen summer camp programs at the Camp Fair.

Organizations that have hosted booths in past years include: Big Brothers Big Sisters; Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center; Brattleboro Outing Club/Tennis; Brattleboro Community Television; Brattleboro Recreation & Parks Dept.; Creating with Clay; Farm Camp!; The Grammar School Summer Camp; Green Mountain Camp for Girls; Kroka Expeditions; Magical Earths Retreat; Meeting Waters YMCA; Neighborhood Schoolhouse; New England Youth Theatre; Summer Food Program; Vermont Wilderness School; Windham County Career Center STEM Summer Camp; and more.

Copies of Youth Services’ Summer Resources Calendar with information on these programs and many others will be available at the fair. Calendars also are available at Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Brooks Memorial Library, and Youth Services. For more information, call 802-257-0361 or visit www.YouthServicesInc.org to download the listing.
