Camps give students opportunities to learn photography, robotics and more
May 13, 2019—Incoming third through fifth graders in Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) will have an opportunity over summer break to learn fun and challenging activities while strengthening their reading skills during the district’s annual “Literacy &” camps. For the first time, the district is also offering a camp that will incorporate math skills called “Numeracy & Entrepreneurship.”
The free camps, which are developed and coordinated by the JCPS Office of Diversity, Equity and Poverty (DEP) Programs, combine reading with character-building activities such as chess, drama, fencing, karate, hip hop, photography, robotics and yoga. Registration is now underway and space is available for students at each of the locations.
The camps will be held for two-week periods in June and July. Camp hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
