Who says that summer camps cannot be fun and educational at the same time?

Warren County Educational Service Center is proud to offer its sixth annual summer enrichment camps for Warren County and surrounding area students ranging in grades 5th – 12th.  The summer enrichment camps are made possible through partnerships with universities and businesses offering interest areas such as science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

Camp favorites like Construction, Raspberry Pi, Waterbotics STEM, LEGO Mindstorm and Exploring Healthcare are back, along with new camps like Fitness and Web Development.

2018 Warren County Educational Service Center Summer Enrichment Camps:

  • SINCLAIR GUITAR BUILDING CAMP, $130 | June 4-8, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. | Grades 7th – 12th.

Have you ever wondered how a guitar is made?  Students will build from a kit their own electric guitar from start to finish.  They will learn along the way how everyday science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) apply to constructing a guitar.  Students will also get to apply their own artistic expression to their guitar through finish.  The end product will be a playable electric guitar to take home.

  • THE HOME DEPOT CONSTRUCTION CAMP, $80 | June 11-14, 2018 or July 16 - 19, 2018 | 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. | Grades 6th – 8th.
