Lutheran church sports camp

A free sports camp was held during spring break on Friday, April 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church .

The YMCA was excited to partner once again with Our Savior Lutheran Church in Danville for our Sports Camp. We had a wonderful time with the kids over spring break. Everything from building edible tombs to Easter Eggs hunts and relay races. We can’t wait to see everyone again for some summer fun. 

 Look for our next Sports Camps to be held June 1, and August 3.
