Monon Center announces UPSTREAM Summer Day Camps
The Monon Center is pleased to partner for a fifth year with the Greene County Department of Recreation to provide an art component for the county’s summer Day Camp program. The Monon Center, a Greensboro-based museum and cultural center, is collaborating on a tie-in with the county’s exciting new program called “UP STREAM,” which stands for YOU being Physical in Science, Technology, Recreation, Engineering, Art and Math.
The arts and sciences share sequential learning habits of the mind that mutually support creative problem solving,
imaginative thinking, and transference of skills and knowledge to new experiences, according to a report presented by Pam Blaker, parks and recreation manager, at a recent meeting. Foundation qualities for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) jobs are curiosity, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking, which are key concepts that are best learned through the performing arts disciplines.
The Monon Center provides inter-generational cultural enrichment serving the region of Southwestern Pennsylvania and neighboring areas of West Virginia. The Monon Center encourages interest, training and educational enrichment in the arts, history, science and culture of the region. At this time, its programming is provided as an outreach service.
There is a pre-registration at each of the sites on Friday, June 12, from noon-3 p.m. Day camp sites are Mon View Park in Greensboro, Carmichaels Wana Be Park, Waynesburg Lions Club Park & Jefferson Day Camp. FMI: 724-852-5323
