Wayne Community College’s energy camp, Camp Kilowatt, will return for its 11th year this summer.
The energy-focused camp will have separate camps for middle school and high school students on the college’s campus, and some middle schools will again host camps.
On-campus participants will explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) areas such as electronics, robotics and manufacturing, as well as alternative energy.
The campus camp for rising fifth- through eighth-graders is set for 9 a.m.-3 p.m. July 8-11. Cost is $80 and covers all materials and lunch. Registration and payment deadline is June 10.
Rising ninth- through 12th-graders can attend camp 1:30-4 p.m. July 24-27. It will cost $40 for materials and snacks. Deadline to register and pay is June 17.
The camps will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration forms and more information can be found at www.waynecc.edu/campkilowatt/.
Again this year, the college is partnering with Wayne County Public Schools to provide camps for middle school students in some area schools. These camps will explore STEM through an energy lens. Parents should contact their students’ schools for more information.

The camp is a product of WCC’s applied technologies division and is financially supported by the Duke Energy Foundation.
