Arts and crafts, “Olympic” field games, football, dinosaurs and so much more. Active summer learning is a gift. Summer camp is an experience some kids take for granted and not all kids get to know. That’s why this week at Lexington School’s Camp Curiosity is so special.
It’s special because of all the new campers. In fact, thanks to Bluegrass Farms Charities, there are 25 campers who’ve never attended Camp Curiosity, and they are attending all week long. Ages 4-13 years old, these children of thoroughbred racing industry workers are enrolled in an exciting array of camps, from “Battle of the Brushes” to “Rio,” computer coding, football, “Lost World Adventures,” and even “Duct Tape Creations!”
“Hosting new campers, especially new ones to TLS, is so much fun,” says Meredith McCoun, Director of Summer Programs. “It’s really rewarding to see their eyes and hearts open as they experience our incredible campus and facilities, all our fun counselors and creative activities, and as they make new friends.”
Founded in 2003, Blue Grass Farms Charities is a unique Central Kentucky 501(c)(3)nonprofit dedicated to serving those that work in all aspects of the thoroughbred racing industry.
Virginia Daughtery, Associate Director of Camp Curiosity says, “It’s been great working with Bluegrass Farms Charities. They are really focused on adding some special experiences for children of workers in the horse industry. I hope we’ll get to work with BGFC next year too.”
Camp Curiosity is a six-week summer program at The Lexington School for all children ages 3-13 interested in active summer learning “outside the four walls of the classroom.”
