Discovery Center students are ready for summer adventures! They took family and friends on a trip to Discovery Camp during their annual spring program, “Let’s Go Camping” on May 3 in the Bellefontaine High School auditorium. The 3- to 5-year-olds sang songs and recited poems about picnics, canoeing, making s’mores and more. They even told scary stories around the campfire.

During a program break, Taylor Stroud and her brother Drew from Indian Lake Middle School and Jack Varner from Bellefontaine Middle School spoke to the crowd about the “Come Play at the Peak” effort to make playgrounds in Logan County accessible to children of all abilities.

Taylor said, “Some kids, like me, are in wheelchairs, or they use a walker or they crawl. We want to be able to play with our brothers and sisters and friends.” All donations offered during the event will go to the Come Play at the Peak project.

The program ended with a finale featuring nearly 100 students singing several songs, including “I Can Sing a Rainbow” and “ I See Many Colors” together. Discovery Center Music Therapist Dawn Byus directed.
