Programs can teach everything from how to juggle to how to grieve.
By Aaron GiffordHear the word “camp,” and you might think of kids roasting marshmallows over a campfire or spending a week practicing goal kicks at a local college. But beyond the familiar programs, Central New York boasts a variety of unusual camps.
See all the blue pinwheels planted around CNY? April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. On Sunday, April 30, Step Up 4 Kids takes place at the Sawmill Creek Shelter on Willow Bay, Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool. Starting at 7 a.m. and going until noon there will be a kids fun run, a 5K and children’s activities, all to raise money for the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center. The registration fee for the 5K is $30 or $35; participation in the fun run is $15. For more information, visit mcmahonryan.org.
