Councilman Warrick thanks Witte Museum camp donors

Scholarships allowed 20 East Side children to attend camp

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio District 2 City Councilman Alan Warrick on Monday thanked donors who provided museum camp scholarships to children on the city's East Side.

Warrick was joined by 20 children who attended a week-long camp at the Witte Museum.

The children learned about the Mayan civilization at the Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed traveling exhibit.

Museum director and CEO Marise McDermott said she and her staff were excited to have the children attend the camp.

"When there is fine motor and interactive motor experiences, it becomes part of who they are, and that's what museums can do for our children."

The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 5.
