Hello. While I am not a member of one any more, I was one when I was
a boy. I am a member of a community center so I guess I can give you
a few ideas from the present and past (with an eye on the budget).
Tumbling - When I was a boy, I took tumbling/gymnastics through
the Boys Club. I loved it. Parallel bars, spring boards, human towers;
what a trip.
Volunteer Camp - groups spend a different week each summer working at
various charity organizations (McDonald House, Food Coops, etc).
Swim Team training - Want to join the team, but don't know how.
Learn how and have fun doing it.
Travel camp- travel around the state (mostly day trips, but longer ones
too) visiting various places (both natural and man made) like factories,
museums, forests, fun parks. (This could be a little expensive).
Wood working - how do they do that?
Bike camp - (for older campers) - learn about how to care for your bike,
while making trips on one. One long trip planned at end of camp (over
Computer camp - wide open
Environmental camp - learn about the environment, learn how to help
the environment, put it into practice. Plant trees & shrubs at parks/
forest, and along highways. Visit trash to product sites. Visit
Old standbys - summer/winter sports, table game championships (chess,
Monopoly, checkers, etc), pool, darts, pottery making, paper making,
family days with family contests.
I'm not sure who you can contact (other than Mike Walton
WALTOML@WKUVX1). A Social Worker might be able to put you
in contact with a professional group of your making.
I know there are professional groups for community center types
just do not know the organization names.
