Also, the Tyrone Area YMCA has announced that registration has begun for its annual Camp Sun-N-Fun scheduled to be held at Bellwood-Antis Community Pool.
This year, a highlight for parents is that camp prices have been cut to provide another reason for kids to be enrolled in camp.
Pricing for day camp (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) is $59 for members and $81 for non-members per week. Camp and extended hours (up to 10 hours a day) is $81 for members and $109 for non-members per week. Children may sign up for a week or for multiple weeks.
For those parents who are interested in extended care, drop-off and pick-up is at the Tyrone Area YMCA, and those just taking part in the base camp hours may drop-off at either the YMCA or the Bellwood-Antis Community Pool.
During the summer, campers will enjoy various activities and games which include swim lessons taught by trained instructors, free swim time, sand activities, arts and crafts, sports, nature and free time with friends.
