The summer program for children will have its kick off on Sunday. Macy Fraylick, local graduate and now a student at Miami University, has developed a curriculum that is varied and valuable. The summer program is titled Camp Growth. There will be classes devoted to enhance math, science and problem solving but also gardening and health. Music and Bible enrichment are included. Meals are served each day. Wednesday will be family day.
There is no charge and youngsters can contact the church for more information. The concept of the summer work is making every child feel a part of the puzzle of life — around us, in the community at large—-and universally. Classes will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and it continues through July 30. You can also contact Macy at 996-8908. The New Madison Public Library is working with the summer program.
