Welcome to Arkansas State University!

A-State Summer Camp Academy 2019 

Featuring the Suddenlink Summer STEM Camp and PK – 2nd Grade Camps held at Jonesboro Pre-K, Flint Street Location

The A-State Summer Camp Academy for 2019 is organized into categories. Camps are held the last 3 weeks in June and the last 3 weeks in July. We have camps for grade levels PK – 12th grade and that is for rising grade levels or the grade entering in the fall. We have a partnership with Jonesboro Pre-K, Flint St. location, where the majority of our PK – 2nd grade camps are held.  This is a perfect location for little ones due to the size of the furniture, equipment, facilities, indoor and outdoor play spaces. We love it at JPK Flint! See the camp list for themes, topics, dates, times, and additional locations for PK – 2nd grade.

We are thrilled to have a partnership with Suddenlink to provide the Suddenlink Summer STEM Camp in June and July! Our STEM camps are amazing because of our awesome instructors, our funders, and our themes and topics. We have a revamped Legos camp for 2 different age groups with a new focus, activities, and instructor. We have a partnership with the Department of Computer Science with Robotics and Robotics Instructors. Our Coding Camp this year is led by a Computer Science faculty who will use drones to teach programming and actual testing of drones in flight on the final day of camp within an indoor enclosed facility – indoors!  And, we are so excited about the first time ever, Digital Game Design camp! We also have a Medical camp with the assistance of the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine here on our campus. 

This year we have an Arts Academy including the visual arts, and the performing arts with choir and drama camps. The Bradbury Art Museum is offering amazing summer camps in June and July for different ages. And, we are using our Art Department students to assist in additional art camps. Our Department of Teacher Education students are leading and assisting with summer camps this year too. So many student assistants from a variety of majors across campus work to make the summer camp program successful.          

We have a new category of camps this year designed to meet student need and lead to greater and enhanced academic success. We are continuing the Camp Connections for children and youth identified as dyslexic or struggling readers using CONNECTIONS based on the Science of Reading. This year for the first time, we are using apps to help students improve note-taking skills. There are multiple two-day camps for different age groups starting with middle school grades and continuing through high school. This camp is designed to improve skills needed for success in college. And, can you believe our “sleep away” camp is in the category of Academic Success Strategies?  Well, it is!  The Camp Explore A-STATE is being repeated for 8th 9th and 10th grade students only!  It is a two-night and three day camp.  Learning about a college campus, a residence hall (dorm), finding one’s way around a campus, navigating a multi-level library, meeting with admissions counselors and attending a few different college classes at this age, helps student learn important terms and concepts such as majors and academic fields of study. The Camp Explore A-STATE creates an expectation and focus on the value of learning, good grades and academic success in middle school, jr. high, high school, and transitioning to college.     

And, we could never have summer camps without our Young Chef Camps for Grades PK – 12th grade!  The cooking camps continue this year and we can’t wait! We also have sporting and gaming for hobby and pleasure, to complete a well-rounded camp schedule for the 2019 A-State Summer Camp Academy! 

Each year registration is improved as more and more of the process is electronic with fewer links and steps. This year the legal documents and the registration page are all located in one place with online payments and this makes everything so easy. Cash payments are also an option on campus at our Cashier’s Window. Directions for registration follow. Pricing has changed this year and that information is provided per camp and/or camp category. 

We can’t wait to see your children, grandchildren, and students this summer on the A-STATE campus!

Connections created by Mary Margaret Scholtens, is a Reading Tutorial Program based on the science of reading designed for students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. The camp is for students PK – 6th grade and combines the Connections instructional program and tutoring in small groups of 4 with Literacy Enrichment Fun! The primary purpose of this camp is to improve struggling readers’ skills. The purpose of the camp is to help students overcome stigma and obstacles previously encountered and achieve success in reading. What greater loss exists than a child’s failure to learn to read? This camp includes individualized assessment to determine a child’s reading level, specific needs, and a planned instructional program for the development of appropriate goals and objectives. Most importantly Connections reading and tutorial assistance is provided for students daily. Small groups of students with similar abilities will be grouped together for 1½ hours of tutorial assistance each day by a trained Connections Instructor along with supervision provided by Connections Therapists. Additionally, A-STATE Teacher Education students trained in Connections will work as classroom tutors under the supervision of the Connections Program Coordinator. Literacy Enrichment activities are planned based on the child’s age, interest level, ability and developmental and maturity level.

 

Literacy enrichment activities include:

  • All Things Sports for those sports-loving boys and girls who will get to create sports board games, sports outdoor competitions complete with score boards and new and different rules. Even a new type of Limbo Game with differentiated scoring is an option. A new game with a soccer ball, a whiffle ball, a foam ball, a beach ball, a styrofoam ball, a tennis ball, and a quidditch ball and goal for the Quidditch Cup. New rules, new games, new score keeping, all recorded for repeated play throughout the week and the crowning of daily champions.
  • Magic Tree House Scavenger Hunt
  • “Wild Thing” costumes - Maurice Sendak;
  • Paper Bag Princess Costumes and Gowns constructed from what else? Paper- all types of paper – Brown Paper Bags, Butcher Paper, Newspaper, Tissue Paper, Wrapping Paper, and bathroom tissue paper along with original story endings. Lots of masking tape needed this day!
  • “Smelly Socks” the book by Robert Munsch is used as a starting point for Sock Puppets! Except in this case, we are using new socks for the creation of unique and one-of-a-kind sock puppets, and Smelly Socks is a great book, too;
  • Sewing, stitching, gluing and stuffing Jillian Jiggs’ Pigs - we will make all of the many different types of pig characters and create more! Jillian, Jillian, Jillian Jiggs, it looks like your room has been lived in by pigs!!!! Children love this fabulous book, too!
