Autumn camps for kids heat up; Programs benefit children, parents




Instead of tapping away at iPads and cellphones, several local students will walk nature paths, shoot arrows and cook hot dogs over an open fire on fall break.

This week, 14 local youths are being disconnected from their electronics and will spend the first week of fall break on outdoor activities at the Indiana FFA leadership center on 160 acres near Trafalgar. This is the first year the group has offered the camp during fall break, and leaders expect the number of children attending to grow in future years.

Another 47 children are signed up for a weeklong day camp at SS. Francis and Clare Catholic School, where they will get technology lessons in the computer lab, learn to bake and play games at the school and church on Olive Branch Road in the Center Grove area.
