Of that number, 122 of the youths were all-day members, while others were signed up for 22 week-long summer camps, hosted in partnership with the Madras Aquatic Center.

“We welcomed 199 different campers, and sold just over 290 camps, the most ever for a summer,” McHaney said.

The camps offerings included aviation, art, survival skills, a farm visit, basketball, football, volleyball, bowling, fishing, dance, music, creative writing and more.

In addition, kids could sign up for shorter “Morning Adventure” activities with themes including Ahoy, Matey, Monster Week, Crazy Chemists, Tasty Pastry, and Eco Adventures.
