CVU summer camp

Registration is open for the Champlain Valley Union High Summer Camp, which gives incoming freshmen a taste of life at the high school.

Former and current CVU students serve as counselors, and work with Camp Director Duncan Wardwell to provide activities centered on 12 interest areas. The areas include academic, artistic, athletic and technological options for the rising ninth graders. Campers choose three interest areas in which to participate.

Larger, group activities also take place during morning attendance, snack and lunch times.

The camp has two sessions: Session I takes place July 6-9 and 13-16; Session II occurs July 20-23 and 27-30. Both sessions run from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day. Space is available in both sessions and in all interest areas. Each session costs $280, or campers can enroll in both sessions for $500.

For more information, visit, e-mail Wardwell at or call 482-7194.
