Stafford to expand summer offerings

Stafford Technical Center will be unveiling seven new full-week summer camps for 2010. Each new camp is modeled around a Stafford program area and focuses on a particular career activity. The new camps are scheduled to run the weeks of July 12-16 and July 19-23 and will be open to students entering grades 9 and 10 in the fall of 2010.

Students wishing to take part in the new theme camps will have many choices.

The first week offerings include a rustic boat building course, an introduction to entrepreneurship and a camp devoted to crime-scene-investigation. The following week students may choose from camps in music, photography, video production and architecture. Each camp incorporates either field trips or a community display of student work. The goal is to not only teach the students about a potential career path but also show them what that job might actually look like in the future. The new full-week theme camps will run with between 10-12 students each and cost $75 for the week. Camps are open to students across Rutland County.

Stafford Technical Center also offers an Arts and Technology Camp for grades 6 and 7 and a Construction Camp for grades 7 and 8. The Arts and Technology Camp is offering a special rate for 2010 of only $35 and Construction Camp is offered at no charge.

Arts and Technology Camp will run June 28-July 2 from 9am-2:30pm daily.

Construction Camps also starts on June 28 and runs through July 9 (excluding July 5).
