East Tennessee State University’s Office of Professional Development invites children and youth to participate in the 2018 Renaissance Child Camps this summer.

The camps offer a variety of educational, hands-on, interactive opportunities for participants from first grade through high school. Programming is based on the STREAM (science, technology, reading/recreation, engineering, arts and math) educational curriculum and follows Tennessee Academic Standards.

The Computer/Digital Media Camp is designed for teens, who will learn about the ZBrush animation/sculpting program.

A Media and Communications Camp for teens interested in writing and journalism will help campers learn the “who, what, when and where” of writing, using departments on campus as the focus.

In the “Kitchestry Lab,” first- through sixth-graders use common kitchen items to conduct safe chemistry experiments and learn to cook basic items.

Other camps include “Teen Forensics Camp: The Art of Solving a Crime”; “Teen Art, Music and Drama Camp”; “Space Week”; “Imagination Station”; “Construction Zone”; “POP: Preserving Our Planet”; and “Da Vinci’s Invention Week.”

The one-week camps begin June 4 and continue through Aug. 3, with one week off from July 2-6. All camps meet from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Fees range from $185-$300, depending on the camp, with discounts available for the children of ETSU employees and students and for multiple registrations.

For a complete listing of the 31 available camps, more information or registration, visit www.etsu.edu/professionaldevelopment and click on “Youth Programming,” or contact the Office of Professional Development at [email protected] or 800-222-3878.
