Migrant Education Program camp

The Clark County Migrant Education Program held another enriching and delightful summer educational program this year!  The program was hosted at Campbell Jr. High School, and the camp's theme this year was "Safari". Students enjoyed studying animals, their habitats, the environments, and much more. They studied Science, Reading, Social Studies, and Math as they explored the many ways one can learn on a Safari.
