LEONARDTOWN, MD – St. Mary’s County Public Schools is sponsoring a Tech Kids Summer Youth Enrichment Program for students ages 8 - 15. The program takes place at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center in Leonardtown. The goal of this program is to provide fun, enriching, hands on opportunities for students. Due to budget constraints, the program will be a Monday through Thursday four-day program.
Supervision will be provided from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. for those students enrolled in two sessions per day. Students may bring a bag lunch.
Course descriptions and applications can be found online or downloaded by visiting the St. Mary’s County Public Schools website, www.smcps.org. Under “Students/Parents,” find “Popular Links,” then click on “Summer Activities,” and finally select the Tech Kids program of your choice.
Students may choose from these programs: “Cold Steel/Cooler Projects,” “Doctor Who?,” “Fun With Culinary Arts,” “Lights/Camera/Action,” “Newsmakers,” “Open Wide/Look Inside,” “Fire Safety,” and “Spark The Imagination Of A Young Designer.”
Tuition for all programs is $75.00 per session. In addition to the tuition, some of the programs may also charge a materials fee.
A hard copy of the Medical Release Form must be completed and returned to Ms. Samantha Nelson, St. Mary’s County Public Schools, 23160 Moakley Street, Leonardtown, Maryland 20650.
Students will need to provide their own transportation to the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center which is located across from the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds, between Leonardtown Middle School and Leonardtown High School.
Confirmation letters will be sent the week prior to the camp opening with reminders for students.
