Sum­mer­time means learn­ing fun at ChattState youth camps

The Catoosa County News - - SPIRITUAL -

Build­ing on the ex­cite­ment and pre­vi­ous suc­cess of youth and teen camps, Chat­tanooga State’s con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment is of­fer­ing a num­ber of week­long camps be­gin­ning June 1 and end­ing July 31 this sum­mer. Camps are de­signed for chil­dren and youth ages eight to 16. Costs range from $115 to $225 per camp.

One of the most popular camps, LEGO Ro­bot­ics, is of­fered ev­ery week dur­ing the sum­mer time pe­riod for all ages. LEGOs have en­riched the lives of chil­dren by stim­u­lat­ing learn­ing and devel­op­ment through play – a key el­e­ment of LEGO phi­los­o­phy. As chil­dren con­tinue to learn and en­joy their LEGO ex­pe­ri­ences, LEGO ed­u­ca­tion spans the con­tin­uum from preschool through uni­ver­sity to pro­vide valu­able lessons in all cur­ricu­lum sub­jects from STEM (Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing and Math­e­mat­ics) to hu­man­i­ties, lan­guage and lit­er­acy.

Two ses­sions of LEGO Ro­botic Camps also will be of­fered at ChattState Dayton, Se­quatchie/Bled­soe, and Kim­ball sites. In Dayton, camps will be held June 8-12 for ages 11-14 and June 15-19 for ages 8-10. At the Se­quatchie/ Bled­soe site, the camps will be held on June 2226 for ages 8-10 and July 6-10 for ages 11-14. And in Kim­ball, reg­is­ter for camps from July 13-17 for ages 8-10 and July 20-24 for ages 11-14.

Par­ents of tweens and teens can reg­is­ter their child for one or more stim­u­lat­ing camps with a fo­cus on 3D an­i­ma­tion, 3D print­ing, mo­bile apps, game pro­gram­ming, dig­i­tal il­lus­tra­tion, web­page de­sign, dig­i­tal photo for your phone, Au­toCAD, graphic de­sign, elec­tron­ics and ba­sic pro­gram­ming, in­tro­duc­tion to ro­bot­ics, or ad­vanced lego ro­bot­ics. Just added: archery adventure.
