The Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center on the Swainsboro campus of East Georgia State College will hold a variety of camps this summer to serve the area’s youth. Because of COVID-19 and safety precautions, camp enrollment will be limited this year. Campers will be required to wear face masks and have their temperature taken when they are dropped off at camp.

To kick off the 2021 summer camps, the Emanuel Arts Council will be hosting an art camp June 7-9, 2021. This camp will be from 9:00 a.m. until noon for rising 3 – 5 grades. Twenty camp scholarships are available through a grant from the Mill Creek Foundation on a first-come, first-served basis. The annual camp will focus on drawing, painting, and creativity! Campers will learn about tempera paint, intensity by way of color saturation, focus on details, and much more. This camp is full of guided learning experiences designed to maximize each child’s creativity.

June 15-18, 2021 Discovery STEM Camp will be held from 8:30 a.m. until noon. This camp is open to rising 3 – 5 graders and participation is limited to 20 campers. The cost of the camp is $125. During this four-day camp, students will take part in engineering design challenges and learn about related STEM careers.

In its ninth year at the Fulford Center, Camp Invention will be held July 12-16 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. for rising grades 3 – 6. Registration for this camp is conducted through local schools. Camp Invention is a nationally recognized unique summer opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering and math through exciting hands-on activities.
