Kids flock to Flint Riverquarium Summer Camp

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Just like birds of a feather, a dozen kids flocked to the Flint Riverquarium today for the start of their summer camp programs.

The first camp for seven to ten-year olds started Monday. It focuses on the Riverquarium's new aviary. Monday, students got to make their own birdhouses and visit with their feathered friends.

Education director Lynn Campbell says they had so much interest in their Wild and Wacky Science class, they've added another week.

"It will be messier. We're going to study solar power and make solar ovens and the children will cook in them. We have solar power balloons that we're going to launch. We're going to study the river also and do some water experiments and we'll probably end up blowing something up," said Lynn Campbell, Flint Riverquarium Environmental Educator.

That additional camp week will run from July 13th through the 17th. The River Rats camp will be a collaboration between the Flint Riverquarium and Thronateeska Heritage Center and students will split their time between the two.

For more information about the camps you can contact Lynn Campbell at lcampbell@flintriverquarius.com
