Elementary and middle school students took part in Franklin County Public Schools’ summer enrichment camps in June. The planned activities for the younger students were centered on the theme GATEWAY Goes Green!, which encouraged taking care of the Earth and making healthy and environmentally responsible choices.
The theme for the summer enrichment camp for middle school students was Out & About. The 27 students who attended visited regional places that highlighted history, science, music, technology and the arts, including the Blue Ridge Farm Institute at Ferrum College and Amazement Square in Lynchburg.
