ATLANTA, GA — Atlanta's Piedmont Park held a summer camp for all kids in Atlanta who wants to participate in a hands-on, engaging environmental learning experience during the Summer of STEAM.

The Piedmont Park Conservancy provides an outstanding camp experience. It cultivates the importance of a green environment in future generations, from science projects to afternoon fitness sessions.

Mornings began with a group activity to ensure that everyone is prepared for a day of learning. Experiments, arts and crafts and other activities were included in the fun-filled day.

Building and launching a rocket, as well as an exploding paint project, are two of the campers' favorite experiments from previous programs. The children enjoyed these projects because they provide a terrific hands-on, visual learning experience.

The campers and staff were connected even more during arts and crafts time, because it required camp staff to get down and help each child grasp the activity and guide them through it step by step.

Many campers said that their favorite part of the camp was meeting new people throughout the sessions. Many children attended all of the camps every year. During the camp, there were many possibilities to meet new people, particularly during the afternoon exercise activities.

Saidah Jones, an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, led the afternoon workout classes. Those sessions began with open playtime, during which they can compete in group jump rope or play four square.

Later, on the Active Oval activity, campers could run around the half-mile track to burn off energy before moving on to play various sports together. Everyone also enjoyed the sand volleyball courts. They either played volleyball or dug around in the sand and made sandcastles with each other.
