Event description

Description

Historic Brownsville Community, Inc. (HBC) and Pensacola Habitat for Humanity (PHFH) are collaborating to provide a six-week “Brownsville Culture & Arts Camp” that will offer children from 4th to 7th grade who live in Brownsville the opportunity to explore their unique place in the context of their community. Funding for the camp is made possible by a Rotary Club of Pensacola Community Grant awarded to PHFH in 2016.

The camp will provide a supportive environment for the children to comprehend, appreciate, and creatively express their growing knowledge about the history, culture, and environment of Brownsville – with local educators and speakers contributing to the curriculum and facilitation of each week’s theme. The end result will be a book, “We are Brownsville,” edited by Robin Reshard, longtime Brownsville resident and creative director at her business, Robert Robino Productions.

The camp will be held on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (including lunch), beginning on April 29, 2017 and ending on June 3, 2017. The location of the camp is Pace Temple CME Church Fellowship Hall, 3004 West Gadsden Street, Pensacola, FL, 32505. Following is a list of the themes for the six-week camp:

Week 1 (4/29/17): Introduction/Get to know one Another/Build a “Lego ® Brownsville”

Week 2 (5/6/17): Brownsville History

Week 3 (5/13/17): Write Your Biography
