Education important in summer

Just because children are out of school for the summer doesn’t mean the learning should end.

In fact it is more important than ever that parents find ways to keep their children engaged in the learning process and developing intellectually.

Once again this summer Ohio University Southern’s Academy of Excellence hopes to address that need — and help youth have a good time in the process.

The academy, which runs from July 15-26, allows children who will be in grades one through six the opportunity to participate in educational workshops that are also designed to be fun.

The two-week camp offers courses taught by teachers and community members from all over the county and range from culinary arts, literature, math and science, technology, dance, karate and more.

The cost for the camp is $110 per child and $75 for each additional child in the same family. The cost for the horse camp is $150 and requires separate registration.

Overall the cost Is minimal for this program that can be a big benefit for children by introducing them to the concept of higher education.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help enrich your child’s education and support Ohio University Southern at the same time.

Summer is the perfect time to help children learn that education can be fun.
