Camp Tiger Tails Summer Camp

Project Coordinator: Ms. Chondra Johnson, Director, Walter Payton Recreation and Wellness Center, Jackson State University

Camp Tiger Tails is one of the projects IMTrans is co-funding. This is a four-week camp that accommodates about 200 k-12 students from 6 to 12 years of age. This year there was an average of 125 students a week.

Camp Tiger Tails 2009 designated a portion of its camp to focus on the important role that transportation plays in our society. Campers were exposed to multimodal transportation outlets through field trips to the Nissan Plant, Jackson Evers Airport, MDOT, Metro One Helicopter and Harley-Davidson Dealership. Campers were able to tour these locations, ask questions, group discussions, determine the benefits of using each means of transportation, review film and learn about signs and safety. Campers were briefly trained on the methods used, materials and equipment usage when constructing signage on the highway. Campers were also given the opportunity to participate in crafting activities, remote control car driving for safety, and constructing boats to float across the swimming pool with two occupants.
