Pam Pertain, Dalton State spokeswoman, said in a recent news release that the camps have gotten a great re-sponse and are growing every year. In addition to World of Science camp, the foundation is also sponsoring the popular Creek Critters and Stream Stomp camps, which both introduce children to the wonders of stream ecosys-tems.
“The World of Science Camp builds on the years of success we have had with our Creek Critters and Stream Stomp camps,” Partain said. “We’ll expand this year to cover principles of physics, chemistry, geology, and mathe-matics in addition to biology.”
Creek Critters is for children ages five and six, and will meet on Monday, July 9, and Wednesday, July 11, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Cost is $45.
Stream Stomp is for children age seven to ten and will meet on Tuesday, July 10, and Thursday, July 12, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Cost is $55.
Creek Critters and Stream Stomp classes will be taught by Dalton State biology faculty members John and Gretchen Lugthart.
“Children are naturally curious and our School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is rich in resources to stimulate the inquisitive mind,” Partain said. “Our faculty members are excited to have these opportunities to share what they know of the natural world with young students who are anxious to learn.”
Registration is open now. Space is limited for all camps. Those wishing to know more or to register may call the Dalton State Foundation at 706-272-4473.
