Posted by | July 6, 2017
Teens learn about science, technology and math while getting ready for college at the Fuel Your Future camp.

A summer camp hosted by Washington 4-H and the U.S. Air Force will help Washington teens from air service families fuel their minds for college success.

At the Fuel Your Future College Prep Camp, July 18-21 at Cheney, Wash., teens can learn about college opportunities and university life with former 4-H members who now attend college.

The camp is open to youth ages 13-17 from active Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard families. Admission is $20.

Participants take part in STEM-based programs at Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University and Spokane Community College, while staying in EWU dorms.

Evening sports and activities will promote healthy living choices, good relationships and resiliency. With help from 4-H and Reserve Officer Training Corps faculty and students, teens will also learn to set goals and think critically.
