Summer Fun at Beacon Hill Center

Table Tennis Camp was a “hit”!

The children in summer camp at Beacon Hill Center have been having a GREAT summer! I wish I could have been in some of these camps; they looked like a lot of fun and had great activities.

Campers in Ms. Gussack’s Recycled Art Camp made earrings and many other fun arts projects out of “stuff” we usually recycle or throw away.


These aliens were excited to make movies in Acting and Movie Making Camps.


In the Cartoons, Comic Books and Comic Strips Camp, children made 3-D comic characters.
