Hopkinsville, KY – Hopkinsville Community College (HCC) will host two different three-day camps for third through sixth graders in July. Pathfinder’s Discovery Camp classes will meet primarily in Round Table Park and other outdoor spaces on the college’s Hopkinsville campus.
Each week is designed for specific grades and will provide an interactive and engaging learning experience with talented educators.
Fifth and sixth graders explore career pathways by learning more about their own interests.
Students will take field trips to high-tech campus learning labs to meet college professors, see demonstrations, try out some of the training equipment and find out what it takes to work in manufacturing, healthcare, or transportation.
This camp, for students who will be fifth and sixth graders in fall 2021, will be taught by Amanda Baxter and Brett Pritchett 8:30am – 11:30am, Tuesday – Thursday, July 13th – 15th.
Working in teams, third and fourth graders will start their own lemonade stand. Participants will pick a business name, design a logo and determine costs. They will develop a marketing plan, build their stand on campus, compete against the other team for top sales to benefit the charity of their choice.
This camp, for students who will be third and fourth graders in fall 2021, will be taught by Courtney Bourne and Sydney Harper 8:30am – 11:30am, Tuesday – Thursday, July 20th – 22nd.
