The Scrap Exchange in Durham is offering up a new series of weekly summer camps in June and July for kids ages 9 to 12.

The summer camp program emulates The Scrap Exchange's mission of promoting creativity, environmental awareness and community through reuse, according to a press release.

The program comes after the popular nonprofit's move last year to a new location in Durham, which offers an expanded Design Center, Make-n-Take Room, large outdoor space with basketball hoops and a community garden. Themes for the four week-long camps are Adventure Builders, Eco-Scouts, DIY Designers and Marketplace Makers.

“This is a chance for campers to learn lifelong skills and experience project-based collaborations through creative reuse,” Executive Director Ann Woodward said in the release. “Helping children learn to think outside of the box about the reusing of resource materials help bring us into a more sustainable future.”

Camps are held onsite at The Scrap Exchange, 2050 Chapel Hill Rd. in Durham. Half-day programs start at $125. The Scrap Exchange's website has more information about the camps, registration and scholarship opportunities.
