This summer, Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School is again offering its Discovery camp. Two sessions of the one-week camp will be held in July for children entering grades 5-8.

Each day starts with an ice breaking activity during the morning drop-off period, followed by the camper’s selected weeklong “Skill Building Activity”. After lunch, campers move over to an enrichment activity – either a physical (sports and outdoor activities) or creative (arts & crafts or writing). For the first four days, the camp ends with a camp-wide team building activity. On Friday afternoons, families are invited to join campers for an Open House/Ice Cream Social.

Camps will be held the weeks of July 10-14 and July 17-21. Campers can sign up for one week or both.

The Skill Building choices offered are:

  • “Beautiful You!” Cosmetology
