The kids in Camp !magine were setting ’em up and knocking ’em down at Spevock’s Nautical Bowling Lanes.
Having spent the morning in classes at the bowling alley July 13, the kids had a chance to unwind and have fun with a pizza lunch and bowling before an awards ceremony. Frank Krempasky, treasurer for Camp !magine, said he’s a long-time bowler and thought a day at Nautical Bowling Lanes would be something fun for the kids. Other activities this summer included a trip to the Ellen Trivanovich Aquatic Center and learning about animals.
For the awards, Krempasky talked to his friends in the Lorain Bowling Association and asked them to donate old trophies and plaques. A trophy shop, Bayorek’s Trophies Signs & Engravables, replaced the engravings on them.
“Everyone is going to be a winner,” Krempasky said.
Camp !magine, formerly Handi-Camp, is a summer program for area students with special needs. The director, Gjergj Haxhiu, started the camp as a way for special needs students to continue their education through the summer months. It operates out of Avon Lake High School. The camp will hold a graduation ceremony Aug. 5.
