The Coastal Empire Council Boy Scouts of America will sponsor Summerfest 2012 on July 22-23 at the Savannah Civic Center.

Summerfest is a fun, indoor summer camp experience for youth ages 14-19. This is a chance for teens to try a zip line, rock wall, rope climb, flying squirrel, football toss and other fun physical challenges. There will also be a basketball clinic with Harlem Globetrotters legends Eugene Raines and Gregory Stafford.

In addition, dozens of local business professionals will be volunteering their time to conduct career competitions and interactive demonstrations in the following career areas: law enforcement, firefighter, engineering, medical and legal careers.

Reservation forms, a complete schedule of activities and other helpful information may be found at or by calling Barbara Foley at 308-7892.

• Adult volunteer opportunities

Adult volunteers are needed to help with check-in, as well as to help with the various activities and career competitions.

The Coastal Empire Council is looking for individuals, youth groups, churches and associations to be a part of this special fun event for teens. Email Barbara Foley at to sign up as a volunteer.
