STATESBORO — Get the kids out of the house as they start their summer break for a new “Down and Funky Beading” camp that will be offered at the Averitt Center for the Arts from June 4-7 from 9 a.m.-noon.   This camp provides an opportunity for kids to let their imagination run wild by creating their own one of a kind earrings, bracelets, and necklaces using beads!  Throughout the week, instructor Julie Ray will teach the students how to create their own personalized accessories that they never thought they had the ability to design.  Students will look forward to a surprise activity on the last day that will leave them with something to remember for a lifetime.  The camp is designed for children ages 11-14 and costs $100 per camper.  For more information on this camp or any others going on throughout the summer, please feel free to call the Averitt Center at (912) 212-ARTS(2787) Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m.–5 p.m., or e-mail
