Arkansas PBS, partners celebrate Season 3
of hit children’s program with screening, exclusive ice cream flavor
CONWAY, Ark. (Arkansas PBS) — Arkansas PBS in partnership with Loblolly Creamery, the Farmstand at Bell Urban Farm and the Faulkner County Library will celebrate the premiere of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse: Season 3” with a “sneak scoop” and preview screening Friday, June 24, from 1-5 p.m. Blueberry will be greeting guests during the event.
The Loblolly Truck will be at the Farmstand at Bell Urban Farm, 2011 Tyler St., Conway, with an all-new flavor – Blueberry’s Jam Party – created in honor of Blueberry and all her friends at camp. This sweet treat features natural purple-blue ice cream with a strawberry jam swirl, dot color sprinkles and shortbread cookie crunch. The flavor will be available at Loblolly Creamery, a Little Rock-based creamery making small batch ice cream and other sweet treats, through August.
The Faulkner County Library, 1900 Tyler St., Conway, will host preview screenings of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse: Season 3” with activities during the event at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
“Blueberry’s Clubhouse” – the original pre-K-2 children's program featuring Blueberry, a curious puppet guide, and her friends at Camp Onomatopoeia participating in fun, engaging and insightful summer activities across The Natural State – returns to Arkansas PBS with an all-new third season Friday, July 8, at 9:30 a.m. The series, produced in partnership with the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, will air each Friday morning at 9:30 through Aug. 12.
This year, kids will learn about art, science, history and the emotional ups and downs of growing up. As always, Blueberry will be assisted by her best friend Max, Camp Counselor Carol, little brother Miles and Chef Shawn. This season will also introduce new camper Sophie and the musical talents of The Jams.
This season’s theme is “Growing Up.” Both Blueberry and Max, along with Sophie, learn to grow into their new roles in the clubhouse. Max knows this is her last summer as a camper, and both she and Blueberry have to come to terms with getting older, which can sometimes be hard.
Each week, Arkansas PBS will share activities and special content through social media so families can bring the fun of Camp Onomatopoeia home.
Statewide partners for season three include:
Episodes will also livestream at myarpbs.org/watch and be available on demand at myarpbs.org/blueberry and youtube.com/myarkansaspbs, as well as in the Engage Arkansas PBS app and PBS Video app.
Support for Season 3 of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” is provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage, Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
