June & July 2018
The Heritage Center will be hosting an art and a drama summer camp this year.
Starting June 4th Purlie Productions will host a drama camp for students ages 8-16.
“This camp is so much more than acting,” volunteer and teacher Kimberly Beck said. “The students design the costumes, do hair and make-up, build and paint the set, learn about sound and lights, and develop leadership and teamwork skills.”
Camp will run Monday – Thursday June 4th – 29th from 9 am – 12 pm.
$50 will cover each student for the entire month.
A parent meeting is scheduled May 14th at 5:30 pm at the OHC 1460 N. Augusta Ave in Waycross.

The Heritage Center will be hosting another Fine Art Camp called Making a Masterpiece
July 9th – 27th. This year students will learn art styles from Ancient Egypt through Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo.
