Our parents sent some of us to the Y's summer activities camps to get rid of us for a few hours. Some field trips involved going to the county fairgrounds (possibly in coordination with the 4-H) to tour the facilities (which always smelled like horse doo) and doing arts and crafts there like the leather works above; visiting Snyder's horse farm on Blacksnake Road; going to some of the same area attractions that we visited during school field trips; playing soccer, flag football, swimming, ping pong, badminton, gymnastic activities, and probably obstacle courses; going to Tall Timbers (now Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort where Robbie Wherley (NPHS '84) got bit on his toe by a fish; watching scary movies including the original Frankenstein; touring various local attractions, etc. I believe Becky Limbacher's older cousin was one of the Y volunteers. - DLVE
