Registration is ongoing for the second annual Civic Heroes virtual summer camp, offered by Troy University’s Office of Civic Engagement.
The free camp is designed for rising fourth-through-sixth-grade students who have a knack for serving their neighbors, learning how to tackle community challenges, or who are simply looking for fun activities this summer.
Because this camp will take place entirely online, children can participate from anywhere.
During the week of June 14-18, campers will meet daily and have missions to complete on their own time. Participants will receive their very own HERO pack complete with everything they need for camp activities.
“We had an incredible response to Civic Heroes last year and engaged students from across the country through our virtual camp format,” said Lauren Cochran, Coordinator of Civic Engagement. “We are thrilled to offer this experience again and truly see the value in investing in civic education at an early age. Our camp leaders have developed a week full of engaging activities to provide a fun experience and make civic learning exciting for our participants. Our desire is for youth to see themselves as active citizens now, rather than viewing citizenship as a responsibility that comes with adulthood.”
Students can register on www.troy.edu/civicheroes no later than May 28.
