Western Carolina University to Host Children’s Creativity Camp June 21-25

CULLOWHEE, NC – Elementary and middle school children can explore a world of creativity this summer during a week-long camp hosted by Western Carolina University.

The seventh annual Cullowhee Creativity Camp will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, June 21, through Friday, June 25, in the Killian Building on WCU’s campus. The cost is $125 per child, which includes lunch in Courtyard Dining Hall.

The camp will engage campers in fun and challenging learning activities. Children in grades one through eight may choose to participate in one of the many learning activities, including multimedia software, digital video recording, robotics and other technology courses. There are 18 interest areas ranging from “Crime Scene Investigation” to “The Inventors Club.”

Parents are invited to an ice cream social and a showcase of all the creative projects developed during the week on June 25.

Sharon Dole and Lisa Bloom of WCU’s College of Education and Allied Professions will direct camper learning with the help of undergraduate and graduate students majoring in education.

“Last year’s event was a big success, and we couldn’t accommodate all of the children who wanted to participate,” said Bloom, professor of human services at WCU.

For more information, contact Dole, assistant professor of human services, at 828-227-7310.
