Through practical experience students accepted in this specialized leadership program will learn about behavior management, health and safety, communication, decision-making, team building and more.
"Dear Summer Programs Staff, I wanted to send you a quick email to say THANK YOU for running such a wonderful program. My daughter is currently enrolled in her third week of camp, and when I picked her up yesterday afternoon, the very first thing she said to me was "I love Hammond!" Whatever they did in Science Camp yesterday must have been completely awesome - we heard bits and pieces about tasting different flavors and making blue slime before she fell asleep two hours earlier than normal! We are new in town and are very grateful to have found your program. Thank you!" - Bryony and Terry Hodges (July 8, 2014)
"Laura cannot stop talking about Kris Teeter's sewing camp. She came home every day saying things like, 'It was so much fun.' 'I wish it was longer.' Each day she came home with a little project or two but today she came home with not just her projects but with a gift from Mrs. Teeter - her own little starter sewing kit complete with full-sized scissors, a seam ripper, pins, thread, etc. Of course they were in a cute little bag that Mrs. Teeter had personalized with Laura's name. I remember I took sewing lessons when I was in 7th grade. I remember it fondly, and I know Laura will always remember Mrs Teeter's sewing camp at Hammond School. She can't wait to do some more sewing!!!
I just wanted to pass on my appreciation for a job well done!! She really went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience for these little girls!! Thanks again to Mrs. Teeter for a wonderful week and to Mr. White for all his work with the summer programs!!" - Tammy Moshier
