Sponsored by the Kentucky National Guard and hosted by MSU, the one-week camp provided a fun and interactive orientation to career and education options after high school.
More than 20 campers, high school Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors attended this year’s event. The camp featured activities in space science, agricultural sciences, law and healthcare. Students also interactively explored the importance of preparing for college, business etiquette and education.
"Life after high school was cool because along with the educational experiences we had fun activities too," said Hailey Stinnett, a Sophomore at Mercer County High School. "Life after high school was an opportunity to meet new people and have new experiences you wouldn't have if you hadn't gone to the camp."
Campers began the week with a career assessment and campus tour. The students were able to begin the camp by examining their talents and passions and discovering the best path for college.
A visit to the Legal Studies Department invited the students to participate in a court case as the jury with Harry Potter on trial.
