SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It's been a week with lots of good news stories and we start with some summertime fun for the differently-abled individuals of the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society.
Camp Buddy is one of the best weeks of summer for the youngsters participating. Campers were having so much fun they didn't realize how much work and therapy they were getting done. All of it is geared toward maintaining progress already made by those participating in Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society Camp while also working towards new accomplishments.
There was steam in the air and on the young minds at work at the Georgia State Railroad Museum this past weekend.
The annual STEAM Fest, which stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math, was an opportunity for kids to play and learn at the same time, a day of interactive games and experiments geared towards building skills in the sciences while not overlooking creativity. Local tech companies provided the activities, but enjoying them is what activated the young minds.
And finally this week, 50 high school students from the Prayer and Action Summer Mission Program were busy doing repairs and cleanup work at Maggie's Morning School. The group had some other projects fall through and reached out to the state-funded preschool to see if they could help. And that they did according to Maggie, giving their time and a lot of effort during the week. The Prayer and Action Group operates through the Catholic Diocese and is being hosted this summer by St. Peter the Apostle Church on Wilmington Island.
