MARYSVILLE — Though the 2016 Summer Olympics are in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, kids in Marysville got to enjoy some similar-type fun.
Marysville’s summer Day Camp program, headed by Andrea Kingsford, put on Camp Rio, a weeklong program where kids played games and created Olympic-style art at Allen Creek Elementary School.
Each week at the summer camp has had a different theme, so it seemed only fitting to include the Olympics for the week of Aug. 8, Kingsford said.
“We try to pick things that are going around us as well,” Kingsford said.
For sports, kids enjoyed events including water obstacle courses, relay races and indoor hockey. Outside of athletics, kids also got to make their own medals as well as an Olympic flag.
“They just do a variety of things,” Kingsford said.
