Center for Lifelong Learning hosts kids’ camps

With multiple camps throughout the summer, children will be hard-pressed not to find a camp to suit their interests at Athens State University Center for Lifelong Learning.

Most of the camps are over, but July still has six camps for kids interested in soccer, STEM or crime scene investigation.

“We’ve got dance camps, athletic camps, science camps and art camps,” said Center for Lifelong Learning assistant director Wanda Campbell.

Most camps are for children ages 8-12, but there is a session of Art Explorers for 5-7 year olds.

Campbell said art explorers will paint, draw and learn about the different mediums of art.

For science-minded children, Gross Science allows campers to learn about the funny — and sometimes smelly — sounds that come out of the human body.
