Core curriculum of the camp focuses on one career or major each week. These themes include: Zoology, business, engineering, culinary arts and kinesiology.
The hands-on lessons in the classroom are complemented by field trips and visits from local firefighters, police officers and the 49’ers Jr. Training Camp.
The 200 middle school students attending the program will visit the Gavilan Community College campus and San Jose State University. Middle school students will also visit Levi’s Stadium and The Tech Museum of Innovation among other sites.
Elementary school students involved in the program will also go on field trips related to the careers investigated each week. Those trips include the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, The Tech Museum of Innovation and Henry W. Coe State Park, east of Morgan Hill and Gilroy.
“The kids are in a healthy and safe environment where they are excited about learning. They are motivated to become engaged and love to be at camp.” Amandy Reedy, Program Administrator for Power School After School Programs
