Wilson youth had a full body of experiences in summer day camps aimed to educate and inspire during their break from school.
At the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, many days were spent swimming in the pool or going on field trips. Kids at the Arts Council of Wilson had paint parties, made paper creations or rehearsed and performed plays.
Dance camps were offered at several venues on ballet and clogging as well as tumbling and dance acrobatics. Imagination Station campers learned about snakes, ocean exploration and what it was like to be a pirate. Young musicians learned how to play the guitar and build a dulcimer at the ProMusic Conservatory, while over at The Singers Studio, campers learned ukulele, musical theater and trio singing.
Athletes had opportunities to play tennis, basketball, baseball, golf and gymnastics at various camps. For those interested in brain gymnastics, engineering camps taught rocketry, aerodynamics, robotics and virtual reality.
