2014 Summer Camps
"Science! You've Gotta to Love It"   

campers love to hike in the forest

The Funk Heritage Center will hold two camps this summer. The first camp will be held June 9-13 for children 1st through 3rd grade. A second camp will be held June 16-20 for 4th and 5th grade children. Both camps will begin daily at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. The fee, including all materials, is $75 per child. Full and partial scholarships are available.

The camps will include both indoor and outdoor activities and will integrate STEM methods (teaching science with hands on and nature experiences). Camp activities are designed to revisit what a child may have learned in their school science curriculum and provide a “warm up” for next year!

campMembers from the Upper Etowah River Alliance will be assisting Funk Heritage Center staff with the camps. Director of the organization Diane Minick, her staff and volunteers present environmental education programs in area schools, scouting groups and community organizations. They will include similar programs during camp that focus on clean water, protection of aquatic species and water conservation. The campers will enjoy learning about Georgia’s land, forest and water.

For additional information about the camps or to request an application, contact Julie Shrout, School Activities Coordinator at jas1@reinhardt.edu or call  (770) 720-5970. You may also click here to download an application brochure.
