It was the last day of summer for kids in the Ocie Hill Summer Enrichment Camp. The program celebrated with a field day in Johns Park where campers ate, played games and enjoyed one last sunny day before school. Brenda Phillips, Program Manager for the Ocie Hill Center, says 213 bookbags were to be given away to the kids for use in the new school year. She also said Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and other city officials were planning to pay a visit in the afternoon. Also at Johns Park was Timothy Brown and his wife Karmen, both of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Columbus. "We're here to teach sports to the campers," said Brown, "but also teach them some life skills about teamwork and character." Brown said also that the theme of the day for the campers was learning how to be "Relentless." Program Coordinator Javontae Feagin, a soon-to-be college sophomore, has been working with the campers all summer. He says his favorite part about working with the children is helping to mold who they might become. "When they come to you," says Feagin, "you have the chance to shape their day."
