THE BRONX -

The Police Athletic League held one of its signature camp events at Bill Rainey Park today.

About 500 children attended Cultural Day, which brings third- and fourth-graders from 20 different summer camps throughout the five boroughs together to work on a different theme every year.

This year's theme is Broadway Musical, with groups of students assigned to one musical.

For weeks, the campers work together and with counselors to create interactive exhibits, performances and artwork as part of the contest and celebration.

Judges were scoring each group and winners are announced at the end of the event.
