Dozens of
students are exploring careers and the campus during summer break at Indian Lake Middle School! Careers@ILS Summer Camp is going on now for students in grades 5 through 8.
Indian Lake Schools Gifted Coordinator and Curriculum Director Kelli Tebbe explains the free, three-day camp is an extension of the district's 21st Century Grant which offers after-school career exploration and tutoring, along with reading and writing extension activities. She says the idea is to expand career study with hands-on experiences with some behavior skills sprinkled in. 
Indian Lake staff members are leading the groups with assistance from Ohio Hi Point Career Center staff, for the first two days. 
"One group is working on culinary arts where they're making food. The class is called BBQ-I'll Make the Sides. For instance, they're making seven-layer pasta salad so they're working with recipes, but they're also working in teams to build teamwork," Tebbe explains. "We've got one class working on fulcrums and catapults, so they're looking at engineering and architecture there."  
In between sessions, the students are taking part in a "Careers on Campus Scavenger Hunt." 
"They've been given twelve different careers to try to find an example of here on campus. So they either have to act it out, take a picture or they have to actually find an example of that career being done on campus." Tebbe continues,"What might you see a welder doing or where could you find a welder having done a project on campus? Or a fun one is an entomologist with cicadas going on this year."
The Careers@ILS Summer Camp is also focusing on soft skills. Students will be studying R-factor basics, building leadership skills and learning to "own" the situation. 
"They're going to be put into tough challenges and they're going to have to think about pressing pause and getting my mind right. I need to adapt and adjust to the situation in order to solve the problem."
Indian Lake High School Laker Leadership Council students will lead the lessons on Day 3. 


The Careers@ILS Summer Camp is set to take place this week, Tuesday through Thursday, from 8 to 11:30 am at ILMS. Anyone who signed up for transportation received a paper on the last day of school with the information regarding the pick up time and location. If they do not have that paper, the ILMS office does have that information.
Those that attend all 3 days earn a money incentive and all students participating will get a t-shirt. It should be fun!!
