Exploring work turns into fun for kids attending Washburn Tech’s Summer Camp. Registration is now open for two sessions, scheduled in June, that are designed to excite and inspire young minds as they explore their interests and even consider future career choices.
Campers choose from a dozen career explorations in the areas of construction, health care, human services, technology and transportation. One day, campers might design colors of a vehicle and then paint one of the panels. The next day, they might operate a mini-excavator or prepare a tasty snack with a culinary instructor.
Camp sessions are June 3-7 for seventh and eighth graders and June 10-13 for ninth and tenth graders. Each session is 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and costs $75, which includes a light breakfast, lunch and morning and afternoon snacks.
Campers will be able to choose from several areas of career exploration, with gaming/Holo Lens being a new addition. Other options are advanced systems technology (tied to careers in manufacturing), auto service, cabinet/millwork, commercial and heavy construction, cosmetology, culinary arts, drafting, electricity, health occupations/nursing, machine/tool and welding.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, May 8, or until sessions are full. Packets are available in the Washburn Tech main office or at WashburnTech.edu. For more information, call 785.670.3359.
