S.C.O.R.E. (Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences) camp preparations were under way Monday in Imperial as co-coordinators Charlesa Kline and Kim Spady, team members and volunteers were busy organizing for next week’s camps.
Monday’s final registration at Chase County Schools (CCS) for the grade 1-6 science camps had people arriving as early as 7:25 a.m., said a volunteer.
Monday’s registration provided 330 students with their T-shirts, water bottles, coolers and schedules.
Campers are registered from 15 locations in Nebraska as well as six other states—Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Missouri and South Dakota, volunteers said.
A table was set up in the commons area displaying a number of books for purchase which will also be sold during next week’s camps.
Once purchased, the books can be autographed by the author, Astronaut Clayton Anderson, on Wednesday, June 12.
Kline mentioned that the books are limited, so people should purchase them early.
“Two large classrooms at CCS were designated as team work rooms,” Kline said.
Both rooms were nearly full with boxes, while tables and countertops overflowed with camp supplies.
Among the supplies were 400 lunch bags donated by Rob-See-Co and water bottles provided by Imperial Rotary Club.
