Local “super heroes” spend day at YMCA camp


Superhero Day at the Hatboro Area YMCA took place on one of summer’s hottest days on July19.

The campers put a spin on the title and dedicated the day to local superheroes. Camp Director Cindy Auspitz worked with Hatboro Fire Marshall Erick Myers to coordinate the event. The entire camp took part in a morning of demonstrations by the Hatboro Police, The Second alarmers ambulance corps, the Hatboro Fire Department and they witnessed the landing and take off a medical helicopter for “JeffStat” at Miller Meadow.

Campers got a first-hand look at all the vehicles and asked questions of the local officers. Following the chopper’s take-off, the local firemen sprayed the campers with cool water from a fire truck – a nice treat on a 90-plus temperature day.

This was the last summer for the Y in Hatboro before moving operations to the new Willow Grove YMCA.

“I’m so grateful to our local law enforcement personnel for coming out on such a hot a day to give our campers an experience they will never forget,” Auspitz said.
