Meeting location: Old Deti Stadium.We NEED VOLUNTEERS (18 years+). If you can help please let me know what days you can volunteer.  If you have kids ages 6 -13 years old please register them at the Laramie Recreation Center front desk. We estimate 40 – 60 kids will be in attendance. We would like 6 – 8 volunteers for each day. The more the merrier. We had lots of fun with this camp during the winter. With 40 – 60 kids attending the camp there is a lot of work to do.
