FOX-13 to host Weather Camp for Kids

The Memphis FOX affiliate, WHBQ-TV FOX 13, will be putting on the first ever “Mid-South Weather Camp for Kids” on Saturday, August 6, 2011, from 9am to noon.

Geared towards 2nd – 6th graders who are either fascinated or scared by the weather (and their parents or chaperones), Weather Authority Chief Meteorologist Joey Sulipeck will host the event at Agricenter International.  Pre-registration is strongly recommended in order for sponsors and participants to plan on how many kids will turn out and all children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event.

Besides getting to meet the personalities from FOX 13’s Weather Authority, children will have the opportunity to learn more about weather via hands-on activities and interactive exhibits.  Other exhibitors include the National Weather Service, FedEx Meteorology Department, Shelby County Health Department, Shelby County Office of Preparedness, and Agricenter International.  There will be door prizes, free giveaways, and much more!

So, if you have kids between 2nd-6th grade who would enjoy a FUN (and educational) experience as school gets ready to start for the year, register them now for the FOX 13 Weather Camp!  Yours truly will also be present representing the local chapter of the American Meteorological Society/National Weather Association, as well as FedEx.  Click here to register or get more information!
