On Tuesday this week, the grade 1-2 SCORE camp was at its maximum number. Fifteen spots still remain in the grade 3-4 camp and there are plenty of places still available for grades 5-6.
SCORE (Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences) will be headquartered in Imperial the week of June 8-12.
If anyone is still wanting to register their grade 1-2 child, a waiting list is available both on the website or by contacting Camp Director Marla Smith at her email:
If there are cancellations, students will be taken by the order in which their names were received and placed on the waiting list, Smith said.
The two camps for grades 1-4 are each limited to 120 participants. Sixty-five are now registered in grades 5-6 with 105 signed up in grades 3-4, Smith reported.
Smith said they wish they could take everyone, but the camps have capacities.
Final registration is June 1 at Chase County Schools from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parents can pick up their child’s camp t-shirt, water bottle, lunch box and camp schedule. Campers can also register that day if there are still openings in the camps.
A June 10 open house at Chase County Schools is open to people of all ages with no charge. It is SCORE’s way of thanking the community for all its help and support, Smith said.
Here is the open house schedule:
6 p.m. Discovery Zone (Shorthorn Gym)
6:30 p.m. Fontanelle Forest’s Raptor Recovery Program with live falcons, hawks and owls.
7:15 p.m. Wildlife Encounters presents “Animals Around the World” with live exotic animals
9 p.m. “Star Party” with Michael Sibbersen at the Jeff Wallin Home
“Go Wild with Science,” the camp theme, is in its final preparations, Smith said.
Schedules are set, instructors are readying themselves for their presentations, equipment and supplies are being organized, site preparations have begun, lodging and meal arrangements are being scheduled, snacks are being made ready, countless volunteers are needed and the directors are ready to make it come alive, Smith said.
