Raleigh, N.C. — High school students can earn college credit during week-long summer programs at William Peace University.
The camps are designed for rising ninth to 12th graders and take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 12 to July 15, on the university’s campus in downtown Raleigh. Faculty members will lead camps about communications and multimedia, sports and spirituality, and the art of songwriting, according to a press release. The cost is $400, and the registration deadline is June 15.
According to the release, students in the communications and multimedia camp will learn about Raleigh’s development while creating a multimedia website that sheds light on the changing face of downtown Raleigh. Students will hone their skills in researching and writing for publication, as well as creating multimedia content such as a podcast, videos and interactive graphics.
Students in another course will learn about the role of sports, games and spirituality in pursuit of happiness and connection. The third course focuses on the art of songwriting (no prior music knowledge required).
“We love summer camp because it demonstrates to our students that you can make a career out of something that is also really fun and our small camp size provides the benefit of individualized attention from the brilliant faculty leading the camps,” said Charles Ducan, vice president for academic affairs, in the release.
During the programs, masks indoors and social distancing will be required. Each camp has a maximum of 15 participants to ensure faculty mentoring and student engagement. More information is on William Peace’s website.
