The Georgia College High Achievers Program will hold its 2nd annual free spring break day camp for elementary students.

A staff of four professional High Achiever Program leaders, 30 High Achievers students and Georgia College art and internationa student with a 1:2 staff to camper ratio will teach fine arts, literary and communication skills to 60 students 6 through 9.

The spring break camp will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, March 29 through Friday, April 2 at the Early Learning Center, 100 N. ABC St. The program provides campers lunch and two snacks daily.

This year’s theme is “Global Connections” and will concentrate on studying the Philippines, Italy, Japan, Australia and Haiti.

“The camp allows students to broaden their perspectives, promote cultural awareness and appreciate global                       connections,” said The High Achievers Program Coordinator Sequena Moon.

The High Achievers have been participating in a counselor-in-training program. The group held a similar three-day camp during spring break 2009.

The camp is available at no charge to campers on public assistance. A cookout for interested campers and parents will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 6 at Central City Park.

The project is funded by the Georgia Department of Human Services and aims to build future leaders in Milledgeville.

The High Achiever camp counselors and program leaders will be on hand to discuss the camp and take applications.

“All parents and campers interested in the spring break camp need to come out to the cookout to submit an application,” Moon said. “We look forward to meeting our future campers and their parents.”
