Masks, utility belts, and capes were everywhere last Thursday afternoon as kids learned the ins and outs becoming superheroes. A training camp took place in the town hall gym as part of the Herrick Memorial Library’s summer reading program. Activities such as a strength test, a disc throw, and wooden beam over “hot lava” were just some of the ways the children tested their hero skills. Once participants completed all the activities, they received certificates marking their completion of the superhero training camp.
