EBACC’s Children’s Summer Enrichment Day Camp 2018

7 Weeks * 19 Different Camps June 11th to August 3rd 19 Camps 9 a.m. to 12 Noon

The goals of EBACC’s summer day camps are to provide children with a fun, friendly, and healthy environment to enjoy summer mornings while building self-esteem, developing skills, and making new friends. Experienced instructors will teach basic skills according to the camp topic and theme. They will also encourage good sportsmanship, value individuality, pro-mote friendships, and create a welcoming environment for all campers. This is the 6th year EBACC will host our Children’s Summer Enrichment Camps. This year we offer 7 weeks with 19 camps to choose from running from 9 a.m. to 12 Noon.
We have many new camps this year so go to the EBACC Recreation & Leisure Program Guide in the newsletter or the classes page of this website to look at all of the camps and descriptions. No matter which camp your children choose, we hope to put a huge smile on their face at the end of the day! We have a great group of camp leaders, camp assis-tants, and community center volunteers who are ready and looking forward to another fun and successful summer! Remember to tell all your friends about EBACC’s 2018 Summer Enrichment Camps and we look forward to teaching your kids new and exciting programs this summer!

The East Berlin Area Community Center is proud to host the 23rd year of the EBACC All Volunteer Youth Basketball Program for 2018! Last year we had over 100 boys and girls ranging from 5 to 16 years of age and expect to have even
more this year!
Our volunteer coaches will make sure each child learns basic skills and fundamentals of the game. They will be taught passing, dribbling, shooting, rebounding and defensive principles. Games will be on Saturdays starting in January. Team T-shirt will be included! Player age groups are 5-7, 8-9, 10-12, 13-15 and 16+.
Sign up and registration will be held during Community Center’s Open House Sunday, January 7, 2018 from 2-4 pm. If
anyone is interested in coaching and you are a parent, please include that on the registration form. If you are not a parent and would like to be a volunteer coach or referee, please contact the EBACC office at 717-259-8848.
EBACC is dedicated to making this program a great success once again! A small concession stand staffed by our volunteers serving delicious popcorn, sandwiches and other goodies every Saturday. This event would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers who care so much about their community.
