Camp Quality participants gear up for cool activity
NEW FRANKLIN — Youths attending Camp Quality at Craftsman Park off Rex Lake Drive took a refreshing dip into the pool on a hot day, July 10, and learned a little about scuba diving, courtesy of Atlantis Outfitters, located on Apache Drive in Uniontown.
The weeklong camp is designed for children that have or have had cancer and offers a variety of activities throughout the week.
“This is a way to give kids something they may never have been exposed to,” said Atlantis Outfitters
owner Jim Stanford, who donated staff and equipment for the scuba activity. “It was a fun, safe time.”
About 12 children practiced and then participated in the three-hour long activity, as shown below.
