United Way to Host a STEAM Camp for kids, 5-10 years old

Summer is here but the learning shouldn't stop for those students who are on break -- at least not on United Way's watch! That's why United Way will be hosting a free STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Camp in conjunction with Anthony ISD's Child Nutrition Department's Summer Feeding Program which offers free, nutritious meals for kids between 1 and 18 years old.

Prior to the distribution of meals, children will be able to enjoy activities and demonstrations such as scratch-n-sniff art, ice cream in a bag and more. Each day of camp will not only be focused on a STEAM component but also on one of the fives senses. In addition, children, parents and caregivers will get a peek at United Way's pilot program, Reading Aces. This new program promotes mentorship by asking volunteers to share 45 minutes of their time to read to an elementary-aged child and help children improve their literacy skills. 

The week-long STEAM Camp is open to children (ages 5-10 years old) participating in the Anthony ISD Summer Feeding Program but encourages anyone interested to attend. No registration is required.
