Wiregrass hosts kids’ camps


June 30, 2014

Fitzgerald - Wiregrass Georgia Technical College’s Ben Hill-Irwin Campus hosted two kids’ camps recently. During the week of June 6-12 the Criminal Justice Technology program hosted a C.S.I . Camp (Crime Scene Investigation) and then June 16-18 the Cosmetology program hosted a Nail Tech Summer Camp.

The C.S.I. Camp had 30 campers attend the Monday-Thursday camp. Some of the activities the campers enjoyed and learned from were; Stranger Danger where the kids were taught how to protect themselves from abductors, they performed crime scene investigations at staged crime scenes, fingerprinting and fingerprint art, pistol simulator and team-building exercises. The instructors would like to thank Tammy Purcell of the Irwin County Sheriff’s Office for conducting the polygraph demonstration for the campers.

The Nail Tech Summer Camp had 22 participants who enjoyed learning about nail art design, manicures, and pedicures. The Wiregrass Foundation North helped pay for supplies for these campers.

Instructors and students in the Criminal Justice Technology program and Cosmetology program facilitated the camps for area students.
