Wayne Community College's Camp Kilowatt is reducing its price and offering financial assistance for those who need it.

"Thanks to the generosity of The Duke Energy Foundation, we're able to drop the price for all campers to $80 and help some kids attend who might not have been able to otherwise," said Angela Wall, an instructor at the college and a coordinator of the camp.

"Duke Energy Foundation has been a Camp Kilowatt supporter for many years and it has come through again this year to help us provide a fun and educational experience for 48 more campers."

The camp for middle and high school students will return for its sixth year this summer. The $80 fee provides each camper with materials for camp activities and a T-shirt, snacks, and lunches. The deadline to register is June 13.

Some scholarships are available. Parents should contact Steven Reese at srreese@waynecc.edu if finances are a concern.

Both rising fifth- through eighth-graders and rising ninth- through 12th-graders attend 9 a.m.-3 p.m., July 14-17 on the college's main campus.

In addition to alternative energy, Camp Kilowatt participants will explore other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) areas such as electronics, robotics, and rapid prototyping/additive manufacturing.
