Hippity hoppity -- the annual community Easter egg hunts are on their way.

Youngsters ages 9 and younger will search for the more than 1,000 plastic eggs with candy inside. Those who find golden eggs will receive special prizes. The hunts, sponsored by Walmart, will be divided into areas for different age groups.

The first Easter egg hunt will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 2, at Lugoff’s Conifer Acres Park.

Camden’s egg hunt will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, at the Rec Department office, 1042 W. DeKalb St.
The Easter Bunny will be on hand for photos with youngsters.

An egg hunt rain date is April 5.

Spring Break Baseball Camp

Camden High School and the Kershaw County Recreation Department will co-sponsor the Spring Break Baseball Camp April 2-4 at the American Legion Field.

The camp for ages 7 to 13 will run from 8 to 11 a.m. each day. Campers will receive fundamental instruction in all phases of baseball. Each player will be drilled defensively on pitching, infield and outfield play. Hitting will be stressed every day. There will also be instruction on bunting, base running and sliding. The CHS coaching staff and players will lead the camp.

Campers should bring their own gloves, bats and helmets if possible and be dressed properly with sweatpants or baseball pants for sliding drills.

There will be a break from 10 to 10:20 a.m. when campers may bring money to buy snacks from the concession stand or bring their own food and drink.

The cost is $40 per player, with a special rate of $35 per youth for two or more players from the same immediate family. T-shirts will be distributed to campers. Pre-registration is required at the Rec Department.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a physical exercise and martial art that has been practiced in China for thousands of years.

The free-flowing relaxation exercise consists of a special arrangement of movements known as the form. The form is many separate movements strung together to produce one continuous sequence lasting for several minutes. Within the form, there are five fundamental principles -- relaxation, Yin/Yang, turn waist, keep body upright and beautiful lady hands.
Combining the forms and principles of Tai Chi will help create overall good health. The word TAI means “great,” while CHI is translated as “vital energy or powerful life force.”

Relax and enjoy good health with the six-week course at the Rec Department building. Classes will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Mondays. The cost is $25 per person. Instructor is Taylor Chestnut.

Call the Rec Department office for more information.


Get a good workout while learning self defense methods with Tae-Kwon-Do classes.

The classes are held each Monday from 6 to 7 p.m. for ages 5 and older at the old armory upstairs. Children will learn self-confidence and self-discipline and adults will master self-defense while getting the ultimate workout. Leading the class will be an instructor from the West Wateree Tae Kwon Do Center.

The fee per month is $30 a month. Pre-registration is required; call the Rec Department office for more information.
