Summer Camp I and II of Children’s Academy

Summer Camp I and II of Children’s Academy

The renovation of the museum’s basement for Children’s Academy was put to full use the first two weeks of June for 24 youth ages 6-12. Mentor Volunteers this year comprised high school, undergraduate and graduate students. Professional artist Salonika Rhynes guided the students in abstract art projects, culminating in a narrated display during closing ceremonies. Other interactive activities included ballroom dance instruction with Maestro Seve Adigun; commemorative flag planting at historic sites with museum historian Joyce Law; crop identification at Thompson Farms, with owner Charles Thompson; and, dining etiquette taught by Executive Director Christine Miller-Betts. Students kicked off each week with a Black History-themed scavenger hunt. More unique fun and learn activities showcased live fauna from Savannah River Site and a lessons learned puppet show. Students kept journals, writing on different topics, throughout summer camp.
