High Achievers camp registration slated Saturday

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Georgia College High Achievers program is prepared to kickoff the fifth annual spring break camp for elementary students with a registration cookout Saturday.

“A staff of five professional High Achievers program leaders and 20 High Achievers students will be helping. What’s unique about this year’s camp is that we’re pretty much starting with a new group of students. About 90 percent of the students are freshmen and I’m looking forward to working with them through their senior year,” said Sequena Moon, coordinator of the High Achievers program. “Since we have a new group of students and don’t want to overwhelm them, we’re going to aim to have a smaller camp this year; we’re aiming for 50 campers or less.”

A cookout for interested campers and their families is slated from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Central City Park. The deadline to register is Monday, March 18.

“The camp is available at no charge to campers on public assistance. They need to bring verification with them to fill out applications on site, we encourage them to bring their kids to meet some of the High Achievers, and look at what we did last year and some things we’re doing this year,” Moon said. “The High Achievers camp counselors and program leaders will be on hand to discuss the camp and take applications. We look forward to meeting our future campers and their parents.”

Participating 5 to 12 year-old campers will learn and explore the lifestyles, languages and traditions of Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Botswana through art, global games, education and country profiling.

The spring break camp will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, April 1 through Friday, April 5 at the First Presbyterian Church. The program provides campers lunch and a snack daily.
