LCTI offers summer camp for area students

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 by ANITA HIRSCH Special to The Press in Local News

Students in grades five through eight recently took part in a two-week long session at Camp Lehigh Career and Technical Institute, where they could spend a week in four classes of their choice.

The classes were not only fun but they helped the students with career exploration.

Some of the choices were Compufun, Cuisinartists, Digital Padawan and Forensic Fun.

There were 21 classes from which to choose.

They were only available in June so look out for the classes next year.
