---- — LONDONDERRY — Children in third, fourth and fifth grades have had a real workout this week at the second annual, four-day Just For Fun, Jump, Throw, Run Camp.

The camp opened Monday and ends Thursday.

It’s a community thank-you from members of the Londonderry High School track and field teams.

For 90 minutes each day, participants ran, jumped, tossed and worked together in relays.

The camp is designed to provide a noncompetitive environment for youngsters to try hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, relays, shot put, discus and javelin.
