The 2010 Camp Falcon and Camp Sparrow has come to an end for this summer at the Mid-America Air Museum.
Camp Sparrow was a new experience for kids ages 4 to 7 and was four weeks long. It had 19 overall students and 51 overall attendance.
Camp Falcon ran for seven weeks and had 32 different students and 105 overall attendance in the 8 to 12 age group.
Camp Falcon had many new students that had never attended camp before and had many from out of town this year. There were students from the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles.
Michele Stoddard, teacher of the camps, said. “I was happy, overall, with both camps this year. To say that we had 51 different students and 156 attendance, overall, shows we had many kids come check out the great museum that we have in just seven weeks.
“I don’t know that I will return next year, but I hope to see that Camp Sparrow continues to grow in weeks and kids,” Stoddard continued. “They all had fun, and were excited to come. The parents that I talked to said they felt their kids had a great time and were sad to see it end.
“I do want to thank everyone that attended and helped in any way to make both camps sucessful. There are photo books at MAAM that can be viewed of both Camps,” she added.
