Opportunity for Middle Schoolers
Dayton Metro Library is seeking motivated middle schoolers to join Career Adventures Camp, June 11-15, 2018. Participants in the day camp will explore and experience in-demand career possibilities based right here in the Miami Valley. Several slots are available for Montgomery County students who will be in grade 7 or 8 this fall.
Each day of Career Adventures Camp focuses on a different industry, giving students an immersive experience in Manufacturing, Healthcare, Construction/Skilled Trades, Aerospace, Logistics and Technology. Community partners and businesses host field trips and in-depth learning activities that will bring a variety of employment possibilities to life.
“This exciting, hands-on experience will give kids the opportunity to meet some of the best and brightest in the fields of the future,” said Diane Farrell, Director of External Relations and Development for the Library. “There will be plenty of time for fun too, with trips to the Boonshoft Museum, exploring kitchen science, and playing a game of Breakout, just to name a few.”
Host sites include BasTech, Dayton Children’s Hospital, the Emerson Helix Innovation Center, GEMCITY Engineering, Levin Porter Architects/Shook Construction, Miami Valley Career Technology Center and the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, June 11 through June 15, with extended care available starting at 7:30 a.m. and extending until 6:00 p.m. at the Main Library. Participation is free, but applications must be completed and approved in advance. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and camp swag are provided.
“With limited camp enrollment, each participating student will get up close experience and personalized attention,” said Farrell. “Each day will be an adventure that really could change lives.”
