With winter break just around the corner for students in the Riverbend, the Alton YWCA is reminding parents about their full day holiday camp. The program is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services and promotes self-directed play and study along with group activities and games to reinforce math and science skills.

Alton YWCA Executive Director Andrea Lamer says the gym will be transformed into a giant playground during the day.

If the weather cooperates, Lamer says children will also be given the chance to explore outside with activities that could include learning about bald eagles and trumpeter swans.

The camp will run from 6:30 a.m. through 6 p.m. December 22nd-24th, 26th, 29th-31st and January 2nd. For more information vall 618-465-7774 or visit www.facebook.com/altonywca
