ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Museum of Art (AMA) isn’t letting storm damage interfere with its popular summer camp.

The first week of camp begins Monday, June 5, 2017, inside the History Museum of the Thronateeska Heritage Center.

“We’re super pumped…we’re kicking off six weeks of art and fun,” AMA’s Director of Education Chloe Hinton said.

The museum will offer four weeks of camp in June and two weeks of camp in July.

As of Sunday morning, 16 children were signed up for the first week of camp. Hinton said there are still several spot available, because the camp can host around 25 kids per week.  

Although the museum isn’t holding the camp in its usual setting, Hinton said they’re still looking forward to having some fun.

“Thronateeska has been super generous in letting us use the Train Depot History Museum for our classroom this year. It’s big, it’s light, we couldn’t ask for a better space,” Hinton said.

The summer camp is for elementary students only.
