Jamestown Collegeâ€™s Raugust Library is hosting Childrenâ€™s Summer Camp sessions for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade.
Sessions will take place June 6-9 and repeat June 13-16. The sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to noon for kindergarten through second grade and 1 to 4 p.m. for third through fifth grade.
Dates and topics:
June 6 and 13: â€œCarlâ€™s Cooking and Etiquetteâ€ will introduce young chefs to cooking vocabulary, tools, safety and good manners.
June 7 and 14: â€œNative American Studiesâ€ will include artifacts from a traveling trunk on loan from the North Dakota Historical Society.
June 8 and 15: The â€œWeatherâ€ session will see campers learning the science behind weather how to notice the shapes of changing clouds and the direction of the wind.
June 9 and 16: â€œBugs, Blooms, Butterflies, Bees and Birdsâ€ will include observing insect specimens with microscopes and learning about the Monarch butterflyâ€™s life cycle.
Each session will begin with a story read from the libraryâ€™s extensive childrenâ€™s collection, followed by an outdoor activity, craft, snack and video. All activities will tie into the dayâ€™s theme.
â€œWe want to share and use our childrenâ€™s collection,â€ says Brenda Fischer, the libraryâ€™s circulation coordinator. â€œOur goal is to make reading and learning fun.â€
The cost to attend the camp is $10 per session. Class size is limited to 20 campers per session. For more information or to register, contact Brenda Fischer at Raugust Library at (701) 252-3467 ext. 2530 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration deadline is May 31.
