Roundout Offers Socialization and Play

Summer Camp Students thumbnail248810

With daily themes to take part in and a schedule that includes arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor recreational activities and pure fun, dozens of Shoreham-Wading River students have been enjoying summer vacation during the District’s annual Roundout program.

The camp, this year taking place at Prodell Middle School, is filled with smiles, laughter and creating friendships. The sessions are offered for three morning hours from mid-July through mid-August and students enter the building ready to embrace that day’s activities. Students participate in activities designed to build fine and gross motor skills and learn the importance of working together with others as part of a team. The program also allows students to socialize, play with and get to know students they will attend school with in September.

According to Bob Szymanski, who oversees the program and its counselors, much of the organized play is provided by the student volunteers, who attended the summer program as campers and enjoyed it so much they came back to share the fun with the younger students.
