During the time period June 20th - 26th, the GIS lab at Washington College will be hosting a Computer Mapping Technology Summer Camp. Computer mapping technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer great professional opportunities for the future. For this reason, Washington College has designed the summer camp to expose students to the field, allowing them to apply skills and address real community issues. During this exciting and stimulating week, students will engage in A Day in the Field, where they will collect data and from it derive a project, which they will later present to their family and fellow campers. Along with this, campers will also have the opportunity to enjoy activities such as kayaking, swimming, and the grand GIS scavenger hunts.
