June 20 - 23, 2016 (Deadline Now) Decatur: Welding Camp for Girls Grades 9th - 12th

Limited Registrations Now Available for SWeETy Camp!!!

Dear Teachers / Counselors & High and Home School Staff:

Sweety Camp is our annual Summer Welding & Technology Camp for Girls who attend area high schools grades 9th - 12th. 

We are currently searching for any last minute students who may want to attend this year's camp, as we have had several students who initially reserved a seat in camp, and have since dropped out and and will no longer be able to attend.  Therefore, we have about 9 Seats open at this time (6-16-16).  We would like to extend the invitation to your students (Female Students Only) who may be interested in participating in this year's camp.

The Camp Details are listed below my signature, so please feel free to share this information with any students you have that may be interested in taking advantage of this exciting educational and fun week-long activity.  Since camp starts next week(Monday June 20) we are very limited with time, so the sooner your students can respond, and the sooner you can share this information with your students, the better chance they have of getting to take one of the few remaining seats that still remain- so please act fast if your student is interested.

All the  camp details are listed below, and if you have students who want to apply, please have them email me, Heath Daws at heath.daws@calhoun.edu
I can collect all the information needed via email, and can call the parents to follow up with their detailed information if they provide their cell phone number in the original email.

Thanks again for your help with this, and good luck!
