Emmanuel Lutheran hosts summer day camp

| July 11, 2016

COSHOCTON – From July 4-8, Emmanuel Lutheran Church hosted a Summer Day Camp for kids in eighth grade and younger.

During this five day camp, kids were able to participate in water balloon fights, witness animal shows, and take a visit to the nursing home to sing songs to the residents.

Summer Day Camp volunteer Dana Kittner said, “Our day camp is an outreach effort; but, primarily it’s just something for kids to do in the summer during the day and we’ve typically picked the week of July 4th because we’ve noticed that there’s not a lot going on for kids.”

Kittner also says that despite this being a simple thing for kids to do during the summer, they really seem to enjoy spending time with one another.

“I think that the kids obviously like having something to do by participating in these activities and it seems like the more engaged they are, the more they start to become a family,” said Kittner.
