Worcester Health Department filling the gap with youth summer camp

WORCESTER CO., Md.- The health department is giving kids an opportunity to have fun, while learning, during their Summer Wellness Camp.

The camp is a four day event hosted at the Delmarva Discovery Museum.

During the camp, teens will focus on all aspects of health, physical, emotional, social, and more.

They will be able to attend field trips and hear from guest speakers.

They also have the opportunity to learn about the environment and financial literacy.

We’re told, while they weren’t able to have this event last year due to COVID, they feel it is important to give kids a sense of normalcy and fill the learning gap.

“Especially for kids who are used to that social environment or school its definitely a severe change of pace, so now that things are getting better, people are getting vaccinated and they are getting out there, people are able to socialize more again so we think this is another great opportunity,” Travis Brown, the Public Affairs Officer for the Worcester County Health Department, said.

This summer camp will go until Thursday.

While the department is no longer taking anymore campers, we are told you should keep an eye on their social media for future events.
