South Point Campers Reach 1,000 Mile Goal
Aug 05, 2016 10:43AM ● Published by Steven Jack
The Oswegoland Park District began counting the miles campers logged during last summer's Kids Connection session. Each summer campers work together to achieve their site goal, with each participants’ steps counting towards the site total.
Daily walks help the sites to rack up the miles, and indoor activities and movement videos have added to the step count despite the rainy days. The sites track their progress individually using smartphone apps to help calculate the distance traveled, and share their ever-growing totals with each other.
The South Point location is home to the Junior Camp Connection program, for those participants ages 4-6 years old. Staff and campers celebrated reaching their goal with cheers and a banner to commemorate the milestone.
