Fun Factory Open to First- Through Fifth-Graders

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College's recreation, tourism and sport management program will offer three one-week day camps through the end of July.

The Fun Factory will be held June 22-26, July 13-17 and July 27-31 for the region's rising first- through fifth-graders. The day camp is held from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CT Monday-Friday at Lindsey Wilson's A.P. White Campus.

The Fun Factory is supervised by Lindsey Wilson Assistant Professor of Recreation, Tourism, and Sports Management Tricia M. Day. This is the second year LWC's recreation, tourism and sport management program has offered the program.

"The Fun Factory provides rising first- through fifth-grade students a structured environment in which they not only have a good time but also learn some things as well," Day said.

The Fun Factory includes crafts and games, a daily one-hour lesson in the Lindsey Wilson Katie Murrell Library and supervised swimming at the Columbia City Pool. Campers are required to bring a sack lunch each day.

On Wednesday, campers will take a field trip to an area attraction.

"We want campers to have a good time, and we also hope to teach them that there is a world of recreation beyond video games and television," Day said.

The cost of the camp is $85, plus a one-time $15 registration fee. All payments cover the cost of running the camp.
