For four weeks in June and July, memories were made as Special Olympics New Hanover County hosted Camp Shriver at Roland Grise Middle School, 4412 Lake Ave, Wilmington, NC.
Camp Shriver runs from 8:30 am until 2:00 pm each weekday. Campers are grouped together on teams that rotated through 45 minute activity blocks. Athletic activities included soccer, basketball, bocce, bowling (on rainy days) and swimming. There are also sessions that include camp wide activities such as track meets, and informal games such as kickball. Each camper has the opportunity to participate in every activity offered
In addition to athletic activities, campers participate in enrichment sessions on topics such as environmental science, fire safety and art activities. Camp Shriver workes with the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and the Wilmington Fire Department to lead these sessions. A healthy lifestyle is further promoted at Camp through the provision of healthy lunches, and snacks (with accommodations made for any individual dietary restrictions). Each Friday is our family day cookout that is held at the Legion Stadium Complex.
We look forward to seeing you this summer, please chechout our daily schedule and registration pages.
