Three sessions of the summer leadership camp will be hosted at Treasure Valley Community College during the month of July. Activities will include a rafting trip, college fair, leadership training, games, a talent show, college tours, movie night, scholarship hunting and a career fair.

The first session, July 7-12, will host Intermountain, Nyssa and Ontario middle school students. The second session will run from July 14-19 for Intermountain, Nyssa and Ontario high school students.
