The deadline for this summer’s 21st Century Summer Enrichment Camps at Westside Elementary School is set for Friday, May 25, the last day of school for Demopolis students.

There will be four summer camps held through the month of June.

From June 5-8, students may participate in a Physical Fitness Camp that will include activities like archery and volleyball. On Thursday of that week, the students will travel to Upsurge in Tuscaloosa with a signed permission form and waiver from parents or guardians. The cost for the camp is $30.

From June 12-16, students may join the Sidewalk Science Camp. This camp will include participating in experiments, pizza making, egg drops, tower building, and more. The cost for the camp is $30.

From June 19-22, students will have the opportunity to participate in Art Camp. Those who participate will create canvas paintings, cray-pahs, watercolors, acrylic painting and more. The works created will be displayed during a special art show held in the lobby of Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital on Thursday, June 22, at 5 p.m. The cost for the camp is $40.

From June 26-30, a Theatre Camp will be held at the Demopolis High School Auditorium. The students will work on a production of “The Magic Tree House: A Pirate Adventure,” directed by Jodie Tartt. The performance will be held that Friday evening. Auditions will be held Monday at 8 a.m.

For each camp, children will need to bring a sack lunch and a juice each day. Lunch will be provided for all camps except the theatre camp. Registration forms should be returned to WES. For more information contact Elsie Collins at 216-8840.
