Summer is the time of year when kids can release all their pent-up energy after having been behind a desk for nine months.
The Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge has many camps, including Camp Runamuk, to help let the energy out.
"Runamuk is a big theme here," said India Dastic, a camp director. "It's about just going crazy. We play a lot of games, and it's pretty free and flexible every day to what the kids want to do."
The directors and volunteer counselors are there to maintain order, but the campers rule the day, which starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m..
"I really like [Camp Runamuk] a lot," 6-year-old camper Zachary Driscoll said. "There is a lot to do here, and you can do whatever you want. They don't make you play just one thing; you can do everything."
Camp Runamuk and is divided into six weeks, each with a different theme; games and crafts are arranged within the week's topic.
