ARC Students Hosting Cultural Summer Camp

A group of rising Academy of Richmond County (ARC) seniors has come together to create a cultural kids camp.

Elementary-aged students are learning about different cultures and languages during their summer vacation.

Campers rotate to different classes throughout the day, including sign language, French, and German. Students at the camp have also been able to learn about other cultures, including Asian, German, and French through their flags, alphabets, and short conversational phrases.

“The kids are getting really into it. They are picking up the alphabet and the words, and they are able to go home and tell their parents what they learned every day. So, it makes me feel proud, as a teacher, knowing that,.” said ARC rising senior Anaya Wilson.

The camp ends on Friday, June 19th with a final performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” in sign language, among other language presentations. It isn’t too late to sign up for the camp. Call 706-627-6339 for more information.
