BY: Metro Source Staff | June 05, 2014

The spirit of the Olympic movement will roll into North Tonawanda as YWCA Tonawandas’ Summer Day Camp hosts a Summer Camp Opening Ceremonies in celebration of Olympic Day.

The celebration will take place at 3 p.m. on the first day of camp, Monday, June 30 at the YWCA Tonawandas, 49 Tremont St., North Tonawanda. The campers will plan and perform an opening ceremonies celebration after viewing ones from Olympics in years past. They will get a preview of the games they will be participating each morning throughout the two week Olympic-themed session and play a few games with Olympian Jack Mathias as well.

“We are very excited to take part in Olympic Day and inspire our campers in the North Tonawanda community,” said Emily McGrath, director of programs at YWCA Tonawandas. “YWCA is proud to support the Olympic movement and encourage children to lead healthy, active lives.”

The YWCA Tonawandas activity is one of more than 700 events taking place nationwide between June 14 and 30. The events, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, feature athlete appearances, family-friendly activities and interactive learning experiences.

Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events.
