  POPLARVILLE - Pearl River Community College will expand its summer adventure camps for elementary and middle school children through a grant from the Lower Pearl River Valley Foundation.
  The foundation approved $8,750 to add camps for students through the eighth grade and offer additional topics. The Wildcat Way 2 Adventure camps started in the summer of 2017.
  “These summer academic day camps will expand the offerings in science, mathematics and technology and offer additional opportunities in art, music, robotics and etiquette,” said Brenda Wells, PRCC director of professional and community development. “Half-day and full-day activities will be offered during June and July.”
  Dates, cost and registration information will be provided through area news media and social media and on the PRCC website, Wells said.
  “It is often stated that repetition strengthens learning,” siad Clyde Dease, foundation president. “Therefore, the Wildcat Way 2 Adventure - Kid’s College is about to put this theory to the test. Participants in this summer camp will have an excellent opportunity review and practice many of the math, science, art, writing and leadership concepts learned prior to this camp, and they will be able to learn and explore new opportunities during these academic summer camps.”

Clyde Dease, president of the Lower Pearl River Valley Foundation, presents a check for $8.750 to Brenda Wells and Dr. Adam Breerwood for the Pearl River Community College Wildcat Way 2 Adventure - Kid’s College summer academic camps. As PRCC director of professional and community development, Wells is coordinating the camps. Breerwood is vice president for the Poplarville campus and Hancock Center.
