More than 400 children attended Washington County's summer play camp program this year, more than double the number that had been projected at the beginning of the summer.
The increase in participation helped the six-week, $90-per-child program nearly break even. The program lost $6,284, compared to a loss of $67,000 in 1994, when the program was free.
"I am very pleased at the turnout," said Recreation Superintendent Stacey McLeran.
McLeran said much of the increase in participation came in the days before the program started.
The number of children participating was lower than the 519 who participated last year, 833 in 1995 and 1,106 in 1994.
