Eighty youth ranging from 8 to 18 years old filled Rivers of the Living Waters Church to participate in Campus Club Milledgeville's (CCM) three-week summer camp.
CCM staff and volunteers provided a nurturing environment where artistic skills were challenged and improved.
This weekend brings the culmination of the summer camp program with CCM's “Celebrating the 1970s” showcase. Participating students have the opportunity to display generated works including singing, dancing, acting, drumming and displaying visual art.
“This summer camp has been a blast. We introduced to kids an era of music and art before they were born,” Executive Director Gregory Barnes said.
The showcase is 6 p.m. Sunday at Georgia College’s Russell Auditorium, 201 N. Clarke St.
Entry is $5 per person.
CCM is determined to respond to historical cycles of hopelessness evidenced by generations of persistent poverty, consistently low educational attainment, poor quality of health and high economic dependence in Baldwin County.
The 2014 Summer Camp was overseen by the Science, Technology, Writing, Engineering, Art, Math & Music (STREAMM) Division of Campus Club.
With fine art as the “engagement-point,” the STREAMM group prepares participants for work and life in the 21st century global economy.
The use of visual art and music through technology increases proficiency in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) developing multi-modal skills that will inspire the next generation of innovators and global citizens. CCM is committed to bridging the technological divide and provides families from low socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to access the latest technology.
