Baltimore White Marsh Adventist School recently hosted its first annual “Summer Enrichment Camp” from June 13-July 1.
A blend of spiritual and academic enrichment and loads of fun, the camp featured daily worship, reading and math enrichment, hands-on science, arts and crafts, educational field trips, and outdoor recreation.
Twenty-eight campers ranging from age 3 to rising 8th graders attended the three-week enrichment camp centered around a weekly theme. For the first week’s “Nature Enrichment,” campers engaged in hands-on, nature themed activities that inspired a love of nature. They also visited the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore.
During the second week’s ”Simple Machine Enrichment,” campers discovered the inner workings of simple machines. A field trip to the Baltimore Museum of Industry where campers engaged in hands-on interactive activities was the highlight of the week.
For the final week’s “World Cultures Enrichment,” campers embarked on a worldwide adventure creating their own “world passport” as they explored the countries and cultures of their fellow campers. Campers represented 13 countries (including Brazil, Honduras, and Nigeria) and visited booths showcasing fun facts, artwork, and clothing from each country.
“My three children had an amazing time at Baltimore White Marsh’s summer enrichment camp. My husband and I were thrilled about this Christian camp experience in our local community. We wanted camp to continue beyond three weeks,” said Linette Zuniga.
“Our mission was to provide fun and engaging summer enrichment activities designed to inspire a love of learning, create positive bonds, and promote the health and well-being of the whole child in a safe, nurturing Christian environment,” said Vernice Hughes, camp director and principal of Baltimore White Marsh Adventist School.
