Southern Cultural Heritage Center sets spring break camp

Published 2:31 pm Monday, March 2, 2020

Spring break is less than a week away and children will be out of school.

While many parents will take advantage of this time to travel with their children, there will be some who will be looking for stay-cation ideas. That’s where Southern Cultural Heritage Center is offering a “Southern Exposure” Spring Break Camp and can help.

Music, gardening and art activities are scheduled for the camp as well as other “camp-like” happenings, SCHF Executive Director Stacey Mahoney said.

“During this camp, children will be exercising mind, body, and soul as they utilize the gymnasium, art classrooms, auditorium, gardens, and media room of the SCHC,” Mahoney said.

Children will also have the opportunity to perform improvisations throughout the week to their peers.

Experienced and accredited educator Karen Biedenarn has planned the activities the children will be participating in during the week, Mahoney said, and she will also supervise all aspects of the camp.

The “Southern Exposure” Spring Break Camp will run Monday, March 9 through Friday, March 13 at the SCHC, 1302 Adams St. Camp hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Early drop-off is available beginning at 7:30 a.m. and parents will have until 5:15 p.m. to pick children up.

The “Southern Exposure” Spring Break Camp is open to children from ages 4 to 13.

Registration fees are $100 per child, which includes a $25 non-refundable fee to hold a child’s spot.

All supplies and a daily snack are included in the cost. Children are responsible for their own sack lunch.

The “Southern Exposure” Spring Break Camp is limited to 40 children and reservations are required.
