UNION — Preparations are under way for Friday’s production of “The Cat in the Hat” by the children enrolled in USC Union Summer Camp.
The children began making props for the play during craft time Wednesday morning. The making of the props is the next step in the preparation process which began earlier this week when the children began learning the parts they will play in Friday’s production which will be presented in the USC Union auditorium.
In addition to working of the play, the children watched a presentation on bees — featuring live bees — from the Union County Beekeepers Association Tuesday morning. The members of the association provided the children with information on and answered questions about bees including the role they play in food production. The goal of the presentation was to show children how important bees are to the well-being of people and why people should take steps to ensure the well-being of the bees.
While most of the camp’s activities take place in the Founders House, some of them take place in other parts of the campus. On Wednesday afternoon, the children went to the Main Building where Dr. Helen Maire-Afeli, Professor of Chemistry at USC Union did a presentation on chemistry.
Summer Camp activities are continuing today with play rehearsals in the auditorium; athletic activities in the campus gym; making flubber and posters; and water day and water bombs.
The camp continues through Friday and the production of the play.
