On Friday night, Greenwich Boys & Girls Club athletic coordinator Camryn Ferrara and teen coordinator Ryan Accurso organized a middle school fun night that allowed the tweens to “challenge a firefighter.”

Several members of the Greenwich Fire Department arrived ready for anything, and the competition was fierce, especially on the inflatable obstacle course.

The firefighters also played catch and basketball with the middle schoolers, and hung out with them in the teen room and game room.

The kids got to pick from the teen room, game room, swimming pool, inflatable obstacle course and basketball. Meanwhile the Keystone Club members organized a concession stand so everyone could stop for popcorn and pizza as they went from activity to activity.

“The kids have fun, bring friends and blow off some steam,” said athletic coordinator Camryn Ferrara, who happens to be a former club kid himself.

In all about a dozen firefighters attended the event and 80 middle schoolers.

Friday’s middle school fun night was one in a series, with each night having a different theme. Club members can bring guests, who have a great time and often decide to join the club.  Most of the middle schoolers this Friday hailed from Central and Western Middle school, though there were some from Eastern Middle School as well.
