Stockert Youth & Community Center to offer Camp Buccaneer, drill team this spring, summer

BUCKHANNON – The Stockert Youth & Community Center is helping kids stay active with several different activities currently ongoing, and more to come.

SYCC director Debora Brockleman updated the SYCC board on the different activities the center is currently offering and the various programs that are coming up in the summer during the March 1 board meeting.

“Today’s the first full capacity day we have had since pre-COVID-19; kids went back to school full time, four days a week, so we have all of our kids today,” Brockleman said. “We are still practicing the social distancing, face masks and sanitizing often, and everything’s going well. Under our fitness programs we have karate, the little ninjas, kickboxing and Zumba – they’re all back in full swing today, and we’re having the security put on the front doors tomorrow.”

She said SYCC is trying to do everything as normally as possible, while also following COVID-19 guidelines.

“Our drill team is looking to get back into practices soon; March 4 (today, Thursday, March 4) will be our first sign up for those kids,” Brockleman said. “We’ve just been made aware that the Strawberry Festival is not having a parade this year, so the drill team is going to be invited to perform on Main Street on that Saturday.”

She said the drill team typically works toward their performance in the parade, so it helps that the team will have an event for which to practice.

“Our girls will get to perform at least at that point in time, and we’re exploring other opportunities where they might be able to perform,” Brockleman said. “It probably won’t be in a parade, but we’re thinking there might be a couple times during Festival Fridays where they might be able to perform as well, so we’ll see what else happens.”

Brockleman is planning on having Camp Buccaneer and a Playground Cleanup Day closer to the summer.

“In April, we’re playing a big Playground Cleanup Day for volunteers and staff because we want to get out there and get some things back into shape to get ready for summer,” she said. “We are planning on having Camp Buccaneer and usually we start our signups for Camp Buccaneer in April, and we unless something drastic happens, we’re going to plan to do that.”
