It's Camp Invention, a national non-profit creation and science-based camp for students who will be in second through sixth grade during the 2004-05 school year.
The camp will be held at the middle school starting June 7 and continuing until June 11.
Teachers for the program are hired by Camp Invention but are local. Sheila Meredith and Jim Blain have been chosen.
Some activities that students will do at the camp includes creative problem solving on "Planet Zack," designing and engineering a safety product, and inventing something new with a broken item brought from home.
Aside from the one broken item for the invention, the program supplies all materials.
Pre-registration is required through the Board of Education by calling 259-4011 and asking for Sharyon Shartzer.
Shartzer says approximately 15 spots are open with scholarships still available. The total cost of the program is $199 per student but scholarships and donations have helped defray family costs.
Days at camp will be much like a regular school day with lunch served and a physical education period.
Shartzer is very impressed with her research on the program. Principals from other schools have been very positive about the learning camp which implements all core subjects but focuses on creativity and science.
This is the first year the program will be in Grayson County. Shartzer said the success of this year will determine whether the program will be offered again next year.
