The Clark County Migrant Education Program held an incredibly fun summer educational program this year! The theme was "Explorers", and the camp lived up to its name as students explored many different subjects and ideas.

Students and teachers talked about everything from the ocean and dinosaurs, to making smart financial decisions, to the study of outer space. Students had a great time with their summer teachers: Mrs. Rachel Click, Mrs. Alisha Smith, and Mr. Ken Howard.
