On Saturday, December 10, the Life Camp Holiday party was held at the Life Camp site in Pottersville, NJ. Over 65 BGCN members were in attendance at the event which is held annually for the youth that attended the camp during the summer season. Both children and parents had a blast! Entertainment was provided by Boys and Girls Clubs Alumni that sang Christmas carols and played musical instruments, which really gave the event a holiday ambiance. There were also arts and crafts activities for the youth for the youth to bring home and cherish. However, most youth agreed that the best part of the party was the arrival of Mr. Claus!
We thank all the volunteers who surely put a smile on everyone’s faces, and for everyone else who pulled together during this holiday season to make this party a success!
