Info session May 13 for EnergyVenture Camp

The Center for Workforce and Community Development at Lee College will host an information session Tuesday, May 13, for parents and guardians interested in signing up their middle-schoolers for the dynamic, week-long EnergyVenture Camp being offered this summer.

The information session will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Phyllis Davis Room at 909 Decker Drive. Those who attend will learn more about how to register their children aged 12-16 years for one of the spots at EnergyVenture Camp, which fill quickly, and receive information about the availability of full scholarships. Sponsored by Shell and ExxonMobil, the camps will be held June 16-20 and June 23-27.

EnergyVenture Camp students discover the countless ways in which the petrochemical and refining industries touch their lives every day. Campers perform lab experiments, win prizes, take a tour of an energy-related facility and hear firsthand from guest speakers who work in the field. Students are also invited to return to campus during the spring semester for an annual reunion, where they can catch up with old friends and get re-engaged with the college and the industry.
