CECI reports on summer camps
The Children’s Education Center of the Islands reported a great first four week of summer camps. Although COVID-19 has played a major part in the CECI’s daily routines, the children are still experiencing an educational, safe and fun summer. They have had hands-on experiences with the natural world throughout the themed weeks. The first week, “Doodlebugs,” campers were inspired by the wonderful, interesting and beautiful aspects of wildlife. During “Hands on Habitat,” the children created insect hotels and investigated different environments where animals live on the CECI campus. “Critter Camp” invited a variety of animals for children to investigate and observe. The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum’s Mollusks on the Move paid a visit for “Water, Water Everywhere.” The children were able to have an individual experience to touch and learn all about mollusks. The CECI is looking forward to the remainder of its summer camps. Although registration is closed, school sign up is open at “http://www.childrenseducationcenter.com”>www.childrenseducationcenter.com or 239-472-4538. Scholarships are available.
