While superheroes are usually popular among children, a camp this week is working on teaching children about the real-life heroes in communities.
The kids are having a super time learning about civics and community engagement at Civic Heroes Camp on Troy University’s campus.
The Coordinator of the Office of Civic Engagement Lauren Cochran says that the objective is for kids to learn about their community, different careers and how they can be superheroes by regarding others.
“We hope that through this week kids have a great time but they also learn about our government, our processes our systems and learning about how to be a good citizen,” says Cochran. “We incorporate games and activities into our programming and so we hope they have a great time but also that it’s very educational for them as well.”
