Children ages 8-13 can have fun this summer while fine tuning their math and language arts skills at the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center youth center at 9106 S. Western Ave. in Los Angeles. The Wooten Center Summer Fun Camp will be held July 5 to August 26 with a full-day program Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $45 per week, per child. Family discounts are available for $40 per week, per child for households with three or more children enrolled in the camp. The registration fee is $30 per household.

Weekly field trips to sites including World on Wheels, The California Science Center, Aquarium of the Pacific, Leo Carillo State Park and Knott's Berry Farm are included at no additional cost. Other weekly activities will include math games, athletics, math, language arts, computer and science labs, and classes on college preparation and gang prevention. A free lunch is available daily at St. Andrews Park.

"As the Wooten Center is a nonprofit, we are allowed to assist our community by offering a quality program at a low weekly rate," said Vanessa Rojo, program director of education. "Children will not only have fun this summer but will also receive the extra help they need to prepare themselves for the next academic school year."
