Excellence in Education: Belmont Day Camp

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


At the Belmont Day Camp, kids have the opportunity to learn how to swim, do yoga, even garden.

During the 12 week camp, kids keep track of how many books they read and are encouraged to make reading a daily routine.

Each summer, the camp provides resources to students from kindergarten to fourth grade. More then 100 kids participate in the Belmont Day Camps.

"The reading and the math and the science stuff throughout the summer. So it’s just kind of a fun time. And a place for kids to be when parents are working, and to keep them safe, says Jean Gerlock, the recreation center director.
