Children need to stay active and engaged in learning during the summer to get a new school year started on a positive note.  That is particularly important to the active mind of the gifted child.  Gifted students from Floyd County Schools have kept their minds active by participating in Viking Exploration Camp this week at Berry College.  Floyd County Schools and Berry College have come to the rescue of weary parents and bored children with a summer camp designed for gifted students in third through eighth grade next school year.   

Classes at the camp include Outdoor Leadership, Chess Masters, Improv comedy, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), Aquatic Habitats, Kitchen Chemistry and more.  Participants have been able to select two classes to participate in during the week with class sessions from 8:30 to 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to noon. 
The classes are taught by instructors with a gifted/talented endorsement from Floyd County Schools, teachers from Berry College Elementary or from Berry Middle School. Materials and supplies were provided and included in the price of the camp. Viking camp
