Staff report

Tolles Career & Technical Center will host its Pathways Camp, a personalized summer workshop experience for students in sixth through eighth grades, from June 5-8.

The camp will allow students in middle school to learn from Tolles instructors during half-day or full-day sessions in various career fields, including computers, cosmetology, engineering, healthcare, environmental science and nature, animals, automotive, fashion and art, and culinary arts.
