2022 Summer Camps WERE A SUCCESS!
Students in grades 8-12 completed our Veterinary Science Camp taught by Dr. Mary Orff at our North Conway Academic Center. Students learned about animal behavior, basic first aid and medical care, anatomy, collecting samples and performing lab tests, administering medications, working with horses and farm animals, and the basics of animal surgery and bandaging. Additionally, students traveled to the Ricci Horse Farm to paint the equine skeleton on a horse in order to view the skeletal system in motion. Students also interacted with exotic animals, such as lizards, pygmy goats, ball pythons, and bearded dragons.
Summer camps concluded this year with our esteemed Culinary Camp in our WMCC Bistro taught by our very own Chef Giles at our Berlin main campus. Students learned basic kitchen skills, knife skills, sausage making, ice cream making, and a whole host of culinary techniques, preparing decadent sauces and a variety of food items. Their culinary experience culminated in students preparing an impressive banquet feast for each other and for friends and family members they invited to attend, all of whom raved about the food prepared for them and the knowledge the students shared about the delicious dishes they were serving.
More than thirty middle school students took advantage of the Safe Sitter® Essentials course at our main campus in Berlin, which prepared participants to be safety conscious when babysitting siblings or when earning money as paid babysitters. Next summer’s course will include CPR training for all participants and will potentially be located at all three campuses in Berlin, Littleton, and North Conway.
