Alton, IL - The Riverbender.com Community Center will host three summer camps throughout the summer. Camp director David Morris is reaching out to the community in the hopes of finding both volunteers to help run the camps, and sponsors to assist in covering the costs of each camp.

June 9-June 13 will be this summer's Art Camp. The Center needs volunteers to help teach the classes, which include pencil art, drawing, painting, pottery, duct tape crafts, and photography.  The next session, June 23-June 27,  is the RBCC’s Sports and Fitness Camp. Volunteers are needed to assist in fitness testing, martial arts demonstrations, and possibly even someone to teach the kids a yoga or Zumba class.  Finally, Computer and Technology Camp will be held from July 7-July 11. Volunteers are needed to assist with programming, Photoshop, and video game creation sessions!

Sponsors are also needed for all camps. Sponsors, whether individuals, businesses, or local organizations, will help to provide meals for the kids and volunteers, as well as supplies, prizes, and special guests for each camp.  Sponsors will be allowed to display banners or posters, and will be mentioned on flyers, websites, and social media. People who would like to assist as a volunteers or sponsors should contact David Morris at 618-465-9850 ext 212 or via email at david@riverbender.com
