Youth Digging Up the Past Before an Underwater Adventure

Children ages seven to 11 are currently digging up the past at Clayton State University… but, it won’t be long before it’ll be time for an underwater adventure.

With the Clayton State Division of Continuing Education’s Youth University in the midst of its first 2009 session – Digging Up the Past – registrations are still being accepted for the second session – Underwater Adventure.

Youth University consists of a wide array of courses throughout the two, three-week long theme-based summer sessions. Each session includes daily classes in Reading & Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies, as well as exploratory classes in fields such as Music, Dance, Drama and Arts & Crafts. Children will also have the opportunity to participate in exciting field trips and interact with guest presenters throughout their time at Youth University.

The first session, geared towards encouraging children to become archeologists or historians, runs through Friday, June 26. The second session, Underwater Adventure, will run Mondays through Fridays from July 6 to July 24. The registration fee is $499 per child and a meal plan option will also be available, as will early morning care and extended evening care. To register, call (678) 466-5050 or go to www.conted.clayton.edu.

“It is our goal for Youth University to provide a well-rounded educational experience for your child that is both informative and fun!” says Clayton State Director of Continuing Education Janet Winkler.

Digging up the Past immerses students in cross-curricular units on dinosaurs, ancient civilizations, and Georgia history while they gain a head start for the upcoming school year with academic classes in Reading & Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

Underwater Adventure will help children learn about the amazing world beneath the waves. Throughout this three-week learning adventure, children will explore the fascinating creatures from oceans around the world, compare and contrast saltwater and freshwater environments, and much more. Diving into observation and discovery, children will learn to value our earth’s precious resources and learn what they can do to make our world a better place.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
