Hampden-Sydney College wants to help young men develop the tools to become better leaders. That’s why we’re inviting promising young men to apply for the Shelton Leadership Challenge—an intense and selective six-day residential summer camp. I’m asking you today to help us identify a few outstanding young men for our upcoming session.During the SLC, we guarantee that participants will be challenged—physically, mentally, and psychologically. Attendees will take onleadership positions and participate in team-building activities (like ropes courses and focused discussions). They will tackle a service project with other campers and further develop their leadership potential.The SLC is a selective program for students who have a 3.0 or higher G.P.A. (un-weighted). The program will take place from June 26 through July 1, 2016, on the Hampden-Sydney College campus. Cost to attend the program is $600 for the week; this cost covers room, board and all activities.

June 20-24, 2016
GHS students will have the opportunity this summer to design and build using their engineering skills and interest! Students will engineer/manufacture a mini-hover craft using a CNC router, 3D Printer, Plastic thermo-former, laser cutter/engraver, and electronics components.
In addition, students will take field trips to engineering and manufacturing facilities such as the Rolls Royce plant where aircraft engines are built, McGuire Veteran’s hospital to see first hand how 3D printing is helping disabled veterans, and the Commonwealth Center for Advanced.
The GHS STEM camp will be held June 20-24, 2016 from 8:30-11:30 with extended days possible due to the field trips. Lunch will be provided on the extended days. The cost for the camp is $120 and is limited to 20 students for the session. The application is available in School Counseling.
Flippy (flippy.com) is a super fast growing new app that lets you become the star of famous clips 🙂 We are running an 8-week marketing internship (Jun 13 – Aug 5) that students can participate in remotely, with live video chat lessons and checkins.
You would get real world marketing experience and learn things like Viral strategy, Influencer programs, Content marketing, Network retargeting, etc. We would get help growing our brand, and learn from your product feedback. Should take only a few hours/week. Seems like a win-win!
