VGCC expands camp; will be at local campus

Vance-Granville Community College's Science Camp for local middle school students, previously held only at the college's Main Campus, will expand this year to the Franklin County Campus.

This Science Camp will be held Aug. 3-7, at the campus on N.C. 56 just west of Louisburg. Rising sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders, from not only Franklin, but also Granville, Vance and Warren counties. are invited the week-long camp, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Sessions will be taught by faculty members from the VGCC Science Department and other college programs. "We will have fun, hands-on activities that involve various sciences and allow campers to explore STEM career fields," said VGCC Science Department Chair Steve McGrady.

"Our outstanding VGCC faculty members collaborate each year to make this a learning experience that is unlike anything available in our four-county area."

The cost to attend the week-long camp is $125, which includes lunch each day and a camp T-shirt.

Science Camp is part of a series of VGCC Arts & Sciences camps and workshops being held this year to reach out into the community with unique learning activities.

A Biotech workshop for high school students and a Creative Writing workshop for adults took place earlier in the year.

In addition, the Teenworks Theater Camp will be held at VGCC's Main Campus, July 6-10, for rising seventh through 12th graders.

Deadline to register for the Franklin Campus Science Camp is June 30.

Parents can register their campers online at www.vgcc.edu/camps. Space is limited to 24 students.

The Main Campus will host the first Science Camp of the summer on June 15-19.

For more information, contact Steve McGrady at (252) 738-3339 or mcgradys@vgcc.edu.
