Final preparations are being made for the upcoming SCORE camp.
Local attendees can do their part by attending a final registration Monday, June 1, in the lobby of the Chase County Schools.
Running from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., parents can stop by to pick up their child’s camp schedule, lunch box, water bottle and t-shirt at that time.
SCORE camp director Marla Smith said the more local people able to stop in the better.
“It really, really helps when people pick up their things ahead of time,” said Smith, so that the kids have their lunch bags and water bottles ready to go the first morning.
SCORE camp staff will be available Monday to answer any questions parents may have and accept final payment, if needed.
If parents are unable to make it on Monday, they can ask a friend or other family member to stop by for pick up, Smith said.
Also available at that time will be carpool lists for students attending from out of town.
Smith said donations are still needed for snacks. SCORE camp follows the Chase County School’s new snack policy and does not allow homemade snacks. Prepackaged snacks and monetary donations are accepted.
Volunteer chairman Chelsea Zuege will be on hand Monday with schedules for individuals volunteering.
Smith said there can never be too much help and volunteers are still needed.
The first and second grade and third and fourth grade camps are filled. There are still openings for fifth and sixth graders.
On Wednesday, June 10, the public is invited to a free open house at Chase County Schools from 6 to 8 p.m.
A meet and greet will be held from 6 to 6:30 p.m. and Discovery Zone activities will be going on in the Shorthorn gym.
The Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery program will be at 6:30 p.m. with live hawks, owls and falcons taking part.
Beginning at 7:15 p.m. in the auditorium will be the Wildlife Encounter with live exotic animals from around the world.
The Super Summer Star party will be held at 9 p.m. at the Jeff Wallin home, depending on the weather. Astronomer Michael Sibbernsen will be on hand with telescopes and other equipment.
