ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County parents may want to carve out some time Saturday, to stop by Merry Acres Middle School, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The school system is hosting a "Super Summer Saturday" event for parents to sign kids up for camps.

Representatives from several different camps will be there to talk to parents about what their camp has to offer.

"Kids get out of school, they are excited for summer, and they tend to not really pick up another educational item until school gets back," explained DCSS Spokesperson J. D. Sumner. "We want to try and avoid that. We want kids to be engaged and involved in learning."

Parents will be able to sign their kids up on site.

Representatives from other community groups will also be at the event Saturday if parents are interested in getting their kids involved.
