We’ve had a great summer and Mystery Week was the perfect way to end it! This week was filled with activities galore! The CLC Campers were kept in mystery until they showed up at camp each day, ready for any adventure!
They went bowling, to the park, swimming, miniature golfing, had water balloon fights and spent the day at Glaser Children’s Museum in Tampa.
We hope you had as much fun this summer as we did! Have a great school year!
“After years of being thrown terms such as percentage and decimal, someone (CLC tutor Sioux) finally broke down their meanings and origins to me. Learning that ‘dec’ was based on every tenth, and ‘cent’ was based on every hundredth as their Latin meaning, was very interesting.
Also, learning all the different ways to write a fraction just to find out they’d all come to the same conclusion makes me wonder why we can’t decide to just use one of the ways to write them. Either way, very interesting and I do look forward to finding more meanings behind all these words and numbers.”

Mother Nature might have taken Water Play a bit too literally this week! Even so, the CLC Campers enjoyed going to the beach, the pool and Eagle Lake Park where they got to see turtles and all sorts of critters that live near and in lakes!
Bowling turned out to be a big hit when storms in the area canceled an extra day at the pool! (We always keep it safe and fun!)
Next week is Mystery Week! Parents: Be sure and check your envelopes so that you get the clues to a week filled with fun and surprises! But keep it a secret!
This week the Community Learning Center Academy campers got to experience marine animals and other lifeforms up close and personal including a trip to the Tarpon Springs Aquarium and the Florida Aquarium in Tampa.
They also got to experience some of those animals firsthand when they went to the beach!
Next week is Zoo Animals and the students will take trips to Big Cat Rescue and Lowry Park Zoo!

Summer Camp has officially started with Art Week. Over the past few days the CLC Campers did many art projects, including going to Art from the Heart Cafe and painting on ceramics for Father’s Day gifts.
The students also made their own t-shirts, sun catchers and clay creations!
In addition to all of this, they also went to the local swimming pool and had a blast! (Swimming is a weekly occurrence during Summer Camp!)
Next week is Games Week! The CLC Campers will be going bowling, miniature golfing and playing a variety of games at the center.
