Summer camp for kids to be offered at WCU
A summer camp for kids is being held July 23-27 at Western Carolina University. The Good Old Time Summer Camp is for children ages 9 through 13.
Participants will attend the camp from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. It will provide an opportunity for children to explore the region’s culture, including the Cherokee and pioneer experience.
Participants will investigate and create crafts such as mask-making, weaving, candle-making, open hearth cooking and pottery. They also will hear a performance by an old-time musician and go on a field trip to local sites of natural and historical interest.
The camp, sponsored in part by the Jackson County Arts Council, will culminate with a day of show-and-tell to allow the children to present their activities and creations to their families.
The fee is $90 per child, and daily lunch in a WCU dining hall is included. http://learn.wcu.edu or 828.227.7397.
