Reception honors Olivet youth artists in ‘Multiple Impressions’ Art Show

Summer camp is all about fun activities, making new friends, and being creative. The Olivet Boys and Girls Club certainly delivered for youth participating in the organizations summer camp program this year, hosting local field trips, swimming and more.

Looking to spur the creativity of campers, Olivet directors offered several opportunities for youth to paint, draw, and be artistic over the summer. With hundreds of pieces of art collected over the weeks, site directors across Reading held an art show to showcase the campers artwork.
