More Cowan Creek Day Camps are on the way! Besides the music school, in 2017 we will also offer:
The Dorothy Miles Art Camp, June 12-16. Led by visual artist and educator Debra Fields and other local artists, kids can get creative with painting, basket making, sculpture and much more.
The Cowan Creek Food and Farm Camp, July 10-14 , will offer hands-on fun in the garden, field trips to local farms and cooking with just-picked veggies.
The Cowan Creek Science Camp, July 17-21, will let kids explore their big world. Look forward to hands-on stream biology, a first look through a microscope, and lots of amazing experiments. We are proud to partner with the East Kentucky Science Center to offer enrichment in science for Letcher County kids.
All day camps begin at 9:00 am and end at 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday at the Cowan Community Center. Registration will begin at 8:30 am on Monday and parents/guardians will need to stay a few minutes to sign permission slips. Nutritious morning snacks and lunch will be served each day. We are pleased to serve as a site for the USDA summer feeding program for children. Classes will be offered concurrently for at least two levels: Ages 3 to 7 and ages 8 to 12. We hope to also offer some classes for teens and adults during the art camp (check back for the full schedule in March). Thanks to a generous grant from the Berea College Appalachian Fund and other donors, tuition for the day camps will be low or no cost.
