Sacred Heart hosts a week long day camp

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Sacred Heart School is keeping 60 Pine Belt students busy for one week this summer, at Camp Invention.

The summer enrichment program, teaches problem solving and team work through hands on activities.

Students in the program range from first through sixth grade.

Director of Camp Invention Tiffany Bradford said, "This years theme is called Spark," students rotate through five modules each day learning about science, technology, engineering and math.

"It's incorporating science in a fun way,there are no tests, so they don't have to study. I think they learn a lot more when they have fun without even knowing they are learning."

Camper Sarah McKay is no stranger to Camp Invention. It is her third year and the thing that excites her most is, "There is a mystery that we have to solve, we are doing that next. It's a lot of fun and we have to build a club house made out of recyclables."

Camp Invention will also be held in Petal.
