The San Pedro Summer Camp came to an end last week after a full month of great activities for the participating children. Summer Camp on steroids, we call it, as the program was chock-full of activities that ranged from regular activities like swimming, fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and picnics to the extreme like cave tubing, archery, parasailing and scuba diving!
The camp was such a smashing success that organizers are already making arrangements for next year when they will be accepting more children and doubling the fun. Just looking at all the activities that the children were engaged in surely tells you that it was a great summer camp; there is not one picture without a big smile on their faces.
