Kids will learn some basics about their camera and how it works, and basic composition ideas. They will take photos and get feedback on their pictures.
Saturday 2-4pm Spelling Bee
Ages: Grades 1 to 6
This is designed to be a fun spelling event, where kids will all be rewarded for their efforts
Each child will be tested, in turn, on a word from the list of his or her grade level. If a word is misspelled, the child will be handed a letter. When the child has accumulated the three letters "B-E-E" then he or she will be considered eliminated from the contest.
