During a week when golf takes over, there are several camps for Columbia County children to enjoy.

The Marshall Family Y in Evans is holding a day camp Monday through April 6.

The camp, which runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily, is for children ages 5-12 years old. Campers will play games, make crafts and play sports, said Marshall Family Y Wellness Director Shonna Sargent.

Campers will need to bring a snack, sack lunch and a water bottle. Early drop-off is available at 7 a.m. and late pick-up until 6 p.m.

The camp costs $85 for the week or $20 per day for Family Y members, and $120 for the week or $30 per day for non-members. Registration is required today. For more, call (706) 364-3269 or visit www.familyy.org.

Artistic children might like the Spring Break Camp offered at Artsy Me. Classes are offered from 10 a.m. until noon each weekday of Masters Week at the studio at 4275 Washington Road in Evans.

“Each day is a different project,” Owner Cricket Willis said. “They can come one day or the whole week.”

Daily projects include working with clay, painting baskets, canvas painting, mosaic boxes and tie-dyed T-shirts. The classes are for children ages 5 and older.

The camp costs $100 for the week or $25 per class.

For more, call (706) 432-6396, or visit www.artsymestudio.com or the studio’s Facebook page.

Gymnastics Gold offers a variety of camps for Masters Week.

“They (campers) get some gymnastics instruction, but we also do different things with them,” receptionist Wendy Hunter said, adding the children will be playing games and having contests.

The camp, held at the gym at 124 Cedar Lane in Martinez, is designed for children ages 4 and up, and they must be fully potty-trained.

Each day of the camp has a theme including Pajama Day, College Day and Sports Day. There’s an Easter egg hunt planned for April 6.

Activities run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Early drop-off is available at 7:30 a.m. and late pick-up extends until 5:30 p.m.

The camp costs $115 per week or $36 per day for members, and $145 for the week or $46 per day for non-members.

Campers need to bring a sack lunch and an afternoon snack.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. For more, call (706) 650-2111 or visit www.gymnasticsgold.com.
