It’s hard to believe we’re already a week into camps for summer 2017! It’s been a week packed with making new friends, playing games and learning a lot.
For one camp, that means using all that new knowledge to give back. Vets in Training is made up of rising second and third graders. They spent their week learning about animals firsthand. That included a visit to the Duke Lemur Camp and even meeting a service dog from Walnut Street Animal Hospital. The service dog, Timber, is able to sense seizures and even sniff out illegal substances.
To wrap up the week, Vets in Training organized a snack sale to benefit the SPCA of Wake County. Campers learned about the SPCA’s mission and were able to share it with other camps who came to stock up on treats and drinks on a hot day. Overall, the camp raised $67 for the cause.
Several other camps showed off all their hard work on Friday. Anime Artist Studio displayed their projects on the wall in Berger Hall. Some used points of reference to inspire their work, but none traced! Also on display in Berger Hall were paintings by the artists in Create Mixed Media. Campers there did a study on trees to learn how to make the leaves look realistic.
It was a celebration in the last day of Little Medical School camp. That group had a graduation ceremony complete with diplomas and an audience. The graduates performed a song for their loved ones to show off their new anatomy knowledge. They even got to take home their own stethoscope. It was a packed week and we’re excited to do it all over again starting Monday!
