Over 400 "FUNdamental Healthy Me" summer day campers will participate in the third annual Lincoln Parks and Recreation Play Days at Woods Park, 33rd and "J" streets. The kindergarten through fourth-grade Play Day is Wednesday, July 30, and the mid-level Play Day is Wednesday, August 6. Both events begin with swimming activities at 10:30 a.m.
The goal of Play Day is to bring together campers for a day of friendly competition and camp spirit.
Campers from Air Park, Belmont, Bethany, Calvert, Goodrich, "F" Street, Everett and Irving recreation centers will participate. Play Day will provide campers the opportunity to participate in a tennis tournament as well as compete in box hockey and Mancala tourneys. The day will conclude with a water balloon toss and awards ceremony.
Lincoln has been recognized as the first "Playful City" in Nebraska by Playful City USA, which is sponsored by Humana Foundation in partnership with KaBoom. Play Day is one of the many activities that support Lincoln's recognition as a Playful City by making it easy for kids to get balanced and active play.
