Youth Program Teaches Entertainment

A new youth program is helping kids reach for the stars, while keeping them grounded with good morals. The Reality Check entertainment program is preparing to open its summer camp on Monday.

The youth group is partnering up with the Coastal Empire YMCA, showing kids different types of entertainment, while teaching them the importance of the business.

The camp will move between different community youth centers through the Y on Wheels program.

Organizers say it gives kids a chance to sharpen their skills. "Not only does it get them off the streets, but it gives them an opportunity to display themselves and their talents," said Reality Check's Raymont Becton. "It also gives them an opportunity to cultivate a talent."

If you'd like more information on the program, or would like to sign your children up, contact Becton at 631.3865.
