Sports camp’s sec­ond year ends with ‘Wizard’-ry

Souderton Independent - - FRONT PAGE - By Bob Keeler

There was lots of ac­tion all last week at Penn Val­ley Church’s sports camp, held at the church’s Telford cam­pus on Third Street.

“We’ve done four sports: soc­cer, base­ball, soft­ball and bas­ket­ball,” As­so­ciate Pas­tor of Fam­i­lies An­drew Saun­ders said.

This was the sec­ond year the camp was held.

“We had 107 campers,” Saun­ders

said, “plus about 50 or so staff mem­bers that helped out with the week.”

The camp, for chil­dren ages 6 through 12, was done in part­ner­ship with the Fel­low­ship of Chris­tian Ath­letes.

It wrapped up the evening of Aug. 10 with a free meal for the chil­dren and their par­ents fol­lowed by an ap­pear­ance demon­strat­ing the bas­ket­ball wiz­ardry of Har­lem Wizards team mem­bers David “DP” Paul and Dwayne “Swoop” Simp­son.

“We just wanted to have a fun end to the week,” Saun­ders said.

“We had a great week,” he said. “The rain held off un­til to­day, but thank­fully we have a gym that we’re able to switch kids around.”
