TOWNSHEND—A free three-week middle school summer camp, offering math, science, literacy, and technology for students who have completed sixth and seventh grade, will open July 9. The camp will be held on the Leland & Gray Union High School campus and is for residents of the Windham Central Supervisory Union’s member towns, including Brookline, Dover, Jamaica, Newfane, Marlboro, Townshend, Wardsboro and Windham.
The courses at the camp, called the Summer Educational Enrichment Kamp (SEEK), are taught by LGUHS teachers, who also designed the program.
One of those teachers, Bruce Whitman, said campers will learn about chemistry, physics, biology, and the environment.
“They’ll also blow things up, make things stink, play with Hot Wheels, look at things under a microscope, and search for life in Mill Brook,” he said.
SEEK will run Monday through Friday from July 9 through July 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free busing will be available along the Route 30 corridor and into Brookline. Students may come for one, two, or three weeks.
SEEK will also provide students with breakfast and lunch, free of charge.
