Lambert's Point Summer Program open to area children and dependents of ODU employees

Old Dominion's popular Lambert's Point Summer Program, serving children from the Lambert's Point and Park Place neighborhoods and open to dependents of hourly and classified university employees, will hold its 19th year of free camps and classes starting in June. Applications are currently being accepted, and the deadline to apply is June 11.

This summer's activities will feature a four-week course in Computer/Reading Literacy, weeklong basketball camps and a four-week Funtastic Summer Camp. A new addition this year is a football day camp (July 11-14) for boys in grades 3-8.

The Computer/Reading Literacy classes (July 5-30) are open to boys and girls in grades 4-9. The basketball camps are open to children ages 8-12. Two basketball day camps for boys are offered: June 28 to July 1 and Aug. 2-5. Girls can participate in either a basketball day camp (June 21-24) or overnight camp (June 22-24).

The Funtastic Summer Camp (July 5-30), offering a variety of activities, will be held at the new Lambert's Point Recreation Center. It is open to children ages 5-12.

Lunch will be provided for all of the participants in the Lambert's Point Summer Program.

Approximately 125 children take part in the camps and classes each year, according to ODU director of community relations Cecelia Tucker, who has overseen the operation from its inception.

"I am delighted that ODU is able to offer these activities again this year," she said. "It's a wonderful opportunity for children in the Lambert's Point and Park Place neighborhoods, and for the children of university employees."
