The First State Community Action Agency Summer Enrichment Camp commemorated the program's accomplishments and recognized the students for their participation July 31 at Georgetown Elementary School.

The enrichment camp provides five weeks of summer fun, recreation and learning to Sussex County youth ages 6-14.

One hundred ten students were recognized for their achievements in the summer program which had dramatic performances, a step show, a decorative display of students' artwork and interactive presentations. The presentations celebrated legendary people, cultures and historical moments around the world.

Those in attendance also enjoyed a multicultural lunch of potluck ethnic dishes prepared by students and their parents.
