Ridgewater Summer Camp offered

Friday, June 7, is the Early Bird deadline to register for the 2013 Ridgewater College Summer Camp set for July in Hutchinson and Willmar. The Hutchinson event will be Monday, July 22 through Thursday, July 25, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. The Willmar camp is set for the same times but from Monday, July 29, through Thursday, Aug. 1.

The events provide numerous fun, hands-on and educational career and interest explorations for youth entering grades 5-8. Again this year, all campers will experience all sessions rather than having to choose. Campers will experience three to four new career/interests each day of camp. Depending on whether you attend camp in Hutchinson or Willmar, exploration sessions may include hydrology, taxidermy, photography, color science, electronics, animals, computer graphics, automotives, plant science, baking, the Native American culture, creative writing and arts, and a variety of health care such as occupational therapy and nursing.

The Early Bird fee is $99 per camper through June 7, or
$119 thereafter. Fee includes four days of activities, materials, lunches, and a T-shirt. Registrations strongly encouraged by
July 8.

The camps are sponsored by the Ridgewater College Customized Training and Continuing Education, Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services, New Discoveries Montessori Academy, and the Minnesota Statewide Health Improvement Program.
