As the summer ends, the popular Menlo Park summer camps also must come to a close. Both Camp Menlo and Menlo Palooza had a successful two months. With great attendance numbers, the children participated in traditional camp activities and field trips; however this year the camps focused a bit more on staying active outdoors. Camp Menlo started each day with a Healthy Mile challenge. The participants were challenged to run, walk or skip, around the track for 1 mile each day with those who completed the challenge throughout the entire camp receiving a prize at the end. The Menlo Palooza camp hosted weekly relays and obstacle courses where participants split into groups and challenged each other for the fastest times. Though some obstacles were messy, the children enjoyed the challenge and raved about the activities each day.
