Registration is open until tomorrow (Friday) for the “Mummy Madness” summer art, history and science camp in Champion next week.

The day camp, for those who have completed grades K-6, will be held June 11-13 at the Champion Community Center.

The camp is sponsored by SCORE (Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences) and Education Adventures.

Ken Schroeder, formerly the director of the Eggerton Explorit Center, has prepared his own program for the camp under Education Adventures. He also supplies the staff and equipment.

Eggerton Explorit Center has presented programs at the SCORE camps in the past.

“Mummy Madness” will allow campers to explore mummies, burial rituals, hieroglyphics, architecture pieces and wonders, ancient art, Egyptian culture and its influence on agriculture, chemistry, cosmetics and more.

Director Marla Smith said the K-3 camp list is full, but she’s still taking reservations, as another instructor may be added for that age group.

The 4-6 age group is about half full, she said, with 50 students the limit.

A grant from an anonymous donor, Smith said, will allow a partial refund to be divided between students, with the amount depending upon the number of students.

The cost of the camp is $70.

For those who wish, campers will be bussed to Champion each of the three days.

The K-3 campers will leave by bus from Chase County Schools at 8:10 a.m. and return at 11:30 a.m.

The 4-6 age group will depart at 12:40 p.m. and return at 4 p.m.

Smith said registrations may be made by calling her at (308) 882-4859 or by e-mail at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She said she also needs volunteers, especially for the K-3 morning camps.
