Kids Soak Up Learning At Water Camp

June 30, 2011

About two dozen children took part in a “Water Camp” Wednesday at Lake Stone in Century.

Water Camp featured fun, hands-on activities designed to get kids excited about water resources and healthy lifestyles. There was also plenty of a watermelon, water balloons, water guns, a water slip-n-slide and other water-related activities.

The event was sponsored by Escambia County Extension.

    It was also posted at City Hall. There’s going to be another activity coming up at the Ag Center where the kids will learn about gardening!

    >>How do you find out about activities like this in the area?????

    Our “Events” page (tab at the top of the page) is a great place to start and check frequently.

    This particular event ran in a story on our front page twice (June 2 & 6), and I believe the PNJ ran it in a story a couple of times as well. Not sure about any of the other area media.
