ASC partners with the local community to bring a Digital & Media Literacy Camp to students from across the district. This specialty camp provides students with enriching and exciting opportunities to become effective communicators and consumers, critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, and empowered citizens. Rising Kindergarteners through 12th Grade students receive instruction from CMS master-level licensed teachers for the 6-week camp.
In addition to serving students, our camp offers Professional Development courses for teachers. With the generous support of the CATO Corporation, we are able to offer a select number of teachers seats the week of June 23-27, 2014. Eligible teachers must be a K through 12th grade teacher working for a public or independent school in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, or Union counties in North Carolina or Lancaster or York counties in South Carolina, and come recommended by their Principal. $500 stipends are available, and teachers will receive 8 CEUs. More information on the teacher PD can be found here, or by emailing Crystal Lail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Arts & Science Council Scholars’ Academy is designed to provide students with a fun and engaging summer experience that will enhance literacy skills through the arts. The focus of the camp is Digital and Media Literacy. Scholars will use digital cameras, wireless devices, and computers to create digital stories, art, and music. Art, science, and math are integrated into project-based learning experiences to summer learning experiences in a fun and creative environment. Students will also participate in field trips and community-based service projects!
Groups are taught by certified, master-level teachers from 8:30-3:30 each day. We have a full-range of certified teaching specialists including talent development, exceptional children, high school science and art, elementary and middle. Campers work with their home-base teacher in the morning and then choose from several different options for their afternoon sessions. Afternoon sessions appeal to a wide range of interests such as: Yoga, jewelry making, digital music composition, team sports, drama, Zumba, Claymation, natural art, printmaking, mosaic art, etc.
The camp is divided into three sessions. Each session lasts for two weeks. Campers are encouraged to attend both weeks of the session to participate in all of the activities, but campers may attend only one week if necessary. Every session offers a different community-based service project and experience. We would love to have your camper for all three sessions! Camp days are Monday through Thursday from 8:30-3:30.
