Two more sessions remain in Northeastern State University's Summer Camp for Kids, which offers learning and cultural experiences on the Tahlequah campus.
Camp director Barbara Fuller said each camp offers a hands-on opportunity for kids and was selected and created around the concept of “what would a kid like to do?” Students from NSU’s College of Education assist the camps.
Two sessions remain and enrollment is open for all camps. “Be a Star” runs July 19-23. Campers explore the world of acting through plays, improvisation, singing, dancing and even digitally inserting themselves into famous movie clips. Campers will also experience a variety of workshops from professional actors, writers and directors. This camp is for ages 7-over.
The final session runs July 26-30 and features two camps. “Reading Between the Lines” is for ages 8-up and lets campers recreate the world of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Campers will participate in a Percy scavenger hunt, learn sword play, participate in Olympic-style games and live the book through art, food, music and other activities. The field trip consists of a trip to Poseidon's favorite aquarium – the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks.
“Photography 101” introduces campers to picture-taking. Students learn how to hold and use a camera and skills such as choosing the right subject, centering, focusing and lighting. This camp is for ages 3rd grade and up. The field trip consists of a visit to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks.
Each full day of camp is 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The cost is $125 for each camp and includes lunch, snacks, camp t-shirt, transportation to and from field trips and admission and special activity costs.
