Snow Camp in Mason

By Regina Russo – bio | email

MASON, OH (FOX19) - When you think of a snow day, you think bundled up and snowball fights and making a snowman with your kids, because after all what do you do with your kids?

But if you live in Mason, your children can have another type of snow day - in the swimming pool.

Snow Camp is being offered at the Mason Community Center. The daylong camp is for children ages 6 to 12 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. who don't have school but have parents who have to work.

The idea came Mason's Assistant City Manager. If you are a V.I.P. member of the Community Center, the camp is free. It's $25 for Mason residents or children within the Mason schools, and $37 for non residents.

According to Angie Gardner Recreation Manager for the city Mason, every hour there's a fun and creative activity for the children.

"Oh my goodness, paper mache, crafts, winter olympics, a movie, you are wearing them out, wearing who out?" she said.

The staff works pretty hard to make the camp enjoyable and the children notice, Simone Scott says.

"When I come here, I get to swim and do fun crafts and games," Scott said.

According to 12 year old Brice Cavanaugh, it's better than staying at home.

"We get to do something other than lay around all day and get to do fun activities," he said.

And parents get a break from their children or is it vice versa?

"The parents enjoyed it, kids were laughing, because parents were working and kids were playing," said Cavanaugh.
