A current episode of Tennessee’s Wild Side features Camp Discover, the collaborative summer project in Grundy County involving Sewanee, Yale Child Study Center, Scholastic, Tracy City Elementary School, South Cumberland State Park, Friends of South Cumberland, Mountain TOP and Morton Memorial Church.
From the program summary:
Wild Side Guide Ken Tucker takes us to Camp Discover, where summer fun mixes with learning to help kids connect with themselves and the world around them.
This year more than 70 students from Tracy City Elementary School participated in the camp and organizers expect to have even more involvement next year…from both campers and the community. Educators believe the core camp principles can be applied to other communities and hope the Camp Discover model can be used to help kids across the state.
