Summer Camp Fun

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Keeping kids busy once school is out can be a bit of challenge for parents.

La Paloma Academy is offering an eight week summer camp program for Tucson students. 

The camp begins on May 26 and runs until July 17, and takes place at the school's Lakeside Campus at Golf Links and Pantano.  

Campers will have the chance to participate in arts and crafts, sports, as well as music and academic enrichment.  

Academy officials say the goal is to keep the campers minds busy during the summer months, when according to a study by Harris Cooper, a professor with Duke University, students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math skills. 

The cost of the camp is $130 per week.
