Oswego County youth and family members are invited to celebrate the autumn season at Camp Hollis on Health Camp Road in Oswego. The fourth annual Hollis Harvest takes place on Tuesday, November 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe plan a Family Fun Day at least once a season so that county residents can enjoy Camp Hollis year-round,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Jim Farfaglia, senior youth services specialist with the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThe events are scheduled during school breaks to give kids fun activities to do on their day off.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
The Hollis Harvest features crafts, games, sports, nature hikes and music around the campfire. Many of the activities will be held outside, so participants are asked to dress accordingly.
This free event includes refreshments. Registration is not required. Donations to support future Family Fun Days are welcome.
Children age 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Camp Hollis is owned by Oswego County and operated by the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau as a residential camp during the summer months for children who live in Oswego County. The facility is available from April through October for use by families, clubs, school groups and other organizations.
