Children from the Kaleidoscope Academy at Ross United Methodist Church in Dyersburg, Tennessee, enjoyed a field trip to Fyrne Lake for a day of fishing on June 13.

The Kaleidoscope Academy is a six-week summer academy (arts, music, dance, history and religion) for children from economically-disadvantaged families.

Students meet Monday through Friday from 8 am to 2 pm. They receive breakfast, lunch and a take-home snack every day. Students also take a field trip and visit the library each week.

Cost for the camp is $10 per week. Some students receive scholarships from the church.

When school begins, the church offers a Kaleidoscope after-school tutorial program from 3 to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. Students receive help with homework and academic reinforcement plus a nutritious dinner before returning home.
