Providing summer fun for kids
Placeholder Image
May 18 is the last of this school year but that doesn’t mean that the learning and the fun stop.
May 31 will be the opening day of Summer Camp ‘07.
Each summer the Community Education Program offers a four-or-five-week, activity-based camp program that provides summer fun for children ages four and older.
Each day is packed with excitement and provides fantastic educational activities that allow students to explore local historic and fun sites as they travel around southeast Georgia – or they can use their imaginations with hands-on activities located on the school campuses.  
Last summer, over 200 students attended each week of camp.
The camp is staffed with Board of Education employees who provide a safe and stimulating summer experience.
The camps are filled with all the things that are associated with summer fun - travels, movies, cookouts, watermelon, water play, and lots of time to enjoy with friends. Exciting field trips allow campers to have fun while learning about new ideas and information.
A day at the Tybee Island Marine Science Center will offer campers the opportunity to participate in a beach discovery walk where they will help pull a seine net and then discover what treasures they have claimed from the ocean.
A visit to the Savannah Children’s Theatre will bring an afternoon of musical fun as the campers enjoy a children’s play. Another day will find campers traveling to Augusta to the Fort Discovery National Science Center where math, science, and technology come alive with hands-on experiences.
On-campus activity centers offer campers a choice of five distinctly different activities that provide a wide range of activities from movies and arts and crafts to centers that give them the opportunity to enjoy innovative games such as Gambit, Blokus, Super Scrabble, and sports-related games.
Campers can use their engineering skills to build, construct, and design using creative tools such as Astro-Logix Neon, Zoob 250, and Planko.
At last year’s camp, there were lots of exciting visitors who energized each day such as Magic Marc, Midnight Star Pottery, Coastal Discovery Museum, and Critters-to-Go. Don’t forget there are trips just strictly for fun to Chuck E Cheese, Flying Frogs, bowling, putt putting, and Star Castle Arcade!
Don’t let your summer be boring and unexciting! Details of this year’s summer camp program will be included in the spring edition of Good News About Bryan County Schools.
This newspaper is delivered three times each year to all residents of Bryan County. The spring edition should arrive in your mailbox during late March or early April.
See you at Summer Camp ‘07!
