  • Camp Discovery 2018


         Pickering Elementary School turned into "The Great Pioneer Town" for Camp Discovery June 4-8. Approximately 60 Vernon Parish students in grades 1-8 completed different Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) educational activities centered around the story of a pioneer family. 

         Camp Discovery is supported by the Education Initiative, led by Fort Polk Progress, which aims to improve school performance, helping to ensure that students receive a great education in the Vernon Parish schools. Fort Polk Progress also provided additional funding needed for supplies and teachers for the camp.
