Staff report

Tolles Career & Technical Center, 7877 U.S. Route 42 South, Plain City, will host its annual Pathways Camp, a personalized summer workshop experience for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades, from June 4-7.

The camp will allow students in middle school to learn from Tolles instructors during half-day or full-day sessions in various career fields, including computers, cosmetology, engineering, healthcare, environmental science and nature, animals, automotive, fashion and art, and culinary arts. Cost of the camp is $20 per session, and all campers receive a Pathways Camp T-shirt.

“The camp is an opportunity for students and their parents to choose which pathways they are most interested, and it gives them the ability to attend as many or as few camps in which they have an interest,” offered Shea Havens-White, camp coordinator. “All sessions are taught by Tolles instructors and are open to students in grades sixth through eighth within our district, which includes Dublin, Fairbanks, Hilliard, Jefferson Local, Jonathan Alder, London and Madison-Plains.”
