RYE, N.Y. Samantha Phillip summer camp on a high note today at the annual Rye YMCA carnival Friday at the Osborn School.
The event was open to Rye YMCA campers and their families. Campers between the ages of four and 11 created their own specialty booths with themes such as face painting, nail art, and make your own necklace out of cereal. Other entertainment included inflatable water slides, carnival games and the always-popular water dunk tank.
The highlight of the carnival was the talent show, where campers showcased their singing and dancing skills in a two hour set. Lisa Timball, the director of communications at the Rye YMCA, said she was impressed at the high turn out this year.
It [the talent show] was packed. A lot of parents were there. All of the performances were very well choreographed, you could tell the kids practiced a lot prior to the show, she said. It was a lot of fun to see.
The Rye YMCA runs a variety of summer programs each year for children from three to 14. Campers can chose among sports themed programs, fine arts, classes for the technologically inclined, field trip-oriented programs, or opt for the more traditional summer camp experience that includes swimming and arts and crafts.
