Voice Camp Guide 2019



The handful of summers before college is precious time for students. Teenagers want to explore their passions, meet more kids that share their interests and try to determine what they want their college years to look like. That’s why choosing a summer trip or enrichment experience is so important. There are programs offering everything under the sun and, although the internet is packed with information, it’s hard to tell what will be the best choice for your child. Meeting the directors and asking questions most pertinent to you is the best way to make this important decision. You can meet all the directors of top enrichment programs easily and efficiently all in one place at the Teen Summer Expo at the Katz JCC on Monday, February 11 from 5:30pm-8:00pm. Bring your teen and explore options from exotic overseas adventures to local internships. Register and learn more at www.- TeenSummerExpos.com.
