Staff announced for science camps PDF Print E-mail
Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

S.C.O.R.E. registration is continuing on the website as well as from mailed-in applications for this summer’s science camps in Imperial, Neb.

Brochures have been mailed to area schools and are also available at business sponsors. Those interested may also print a brochure from the website:

There were 92 campers registered as of last week—34 for grades 1-2, 34 for grades 3-4 and 24 in grades 5-6.

Several changes have been made for the 2011 camps. In addition to the change from a five-day half-day schedule to a three-day full-day schedule, changes have also been made in the staff.

The 2011 camp staff is as follows:

Marla Smith, project director, curriculum and co-founder; Kim Spady, assistant director; and Charlesa Kline, snacks and director assistant.

Jennifer Prodoehl will be the equipment director, with Molly and Morgan Strand as assistants. Prodoehl will organize all equipment and supplies before, during and after the camp.

Mary Haarberg has been named site director, with assistants Hunter Spady and Paul Gaschler. Haarberg will prepare each camp site for the day’s activities, set up tents, rotate groups and make sure the camp is ready to go once the students arrive.

Camp sites this summer will be Cox’s Ponds for grades 1-4 and Swinging Bridge Ranch for 5-6 grades, in addition to Chase County Schools.

Arlys Cupp will be the kids’ captain. Cupp has been a past camp director but returns to S.C.O.R.E. in 2011 as the kids’ captain. Her responsibilities will be to meet and greet the children on arrival, organize them into groups/teams, pair them up with their volunteer leaders, get them on buses, organize their lunches and meet them as they arrive back at CCS at the close of the camp day. Cupp will also be helping out in other ways throughout the week.

Ellen Brogie and Jason Speck have been named camp directors for grades 5-6.

Other staff members include Jill Moline, hospitality; Bonnie Weiss, hospitality room; Linda Lakey, registration; Chelsea Zuege, registration assistant; Lynn Luhrs, volunteer; Jorge Cardoso, Black Brick Software, website tech; and Angie Paisley, nurse.

It takes a great team dedicated to the program and willing to put in the extra time and effort. Each is willing to help one another and give many unpaid hours toward the success of the camp.

In addition to the staff, hundreds of community volunteers help the camps run smoothly throughout the week. The camp could not exist in its present form without the help of all the great volunteers from ages 13-senior adults and the community support.
