Raugust Library hosting summer camp for kids

Jamestown College’s Raugust Library is hosting Children’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.



Jamestown College's Raugust Library has a fun and inviting children's section.

Dates and topics:

June 6 and 13: “Carl’s Cooking and Etiquette” will introduce young chefs to cooking vocabulary, tools, safety and good manners.

June 7 and 14: “Native American Studies” will include artifacts from a traveling trunk on loan from the North Dakota Historical Society.

June 8 and 15: The “Weather” 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: “Bugs, Blooms, Butterflies, Bees and Birds” will include observing insect specimens with microscopes and learning about the Monarch butterfly’s life cycle.

Each session will begin with a story read from the library’s extensive children’s collection, followed by an outdoor activity, craft, snack and video. All activities will tie into the day’s theme.

“We want to share and use our children’s collection,” says Brenda Fischer, the library’s circulation coordinator. “Our goal is to make reading and learning fun.”

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 bfischer@jc.edu. The registration deadline is May 31.
