2012 Learning for Life programs
This summer, the Longhouse Council is pleased to offer Career Camp for young men and women ages 14-18. The first week will have an Engineering focus with the second week centering on Law Enforcement. Each day students will be visiting a different business location around the county for an exciting well rounded experience. This program is meant to provide students the opportunity to earn about their career interests while they are still in high school. Students will gain invaluable insight while working side by side with professionals in our community. Lockheed Martin, Welch Allyn, SUNY-ESF, C&S Companies, Syracuse Research Corporation, Onondaga County 911 Center, City of Syracuse Police Department, New York State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Secret Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the U.S. Secret Service are all eagerly anticipating your arrival.
Engineering Camp July 9-13, 2012
Engineering Camp will allow students to interact with actual Biomedical, Electrical, Software and Mechanical engineers who create the Welch Allyn products and designs. Students will explore how these disciplines contribute to making innovation, world class medical devices. At Lockheed Martin, they will participate in teams to solve a series of hands-on engineering challenges that will test your problem solving and design skills. With hundreds of C&S-designed and built projects throughout Onondaga County, students will learn how engineering conducted right here in Syracuse impacts their lives every day. Students will be introduced to GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and Remote Sensing interpretation techniques at SUNY-ESF.
Law Enforcement Camp July 16-20, 2012
Law Enforcement Camp offers exposure to the assorted functions and duties law enforcement officers face on a daily basis. Each day the students will be transported to a different law enforcement agency exposing the students to as many of the different opportunities that are available in the law enforcement field as possible. We will spend a day with the City of Syracuse Police Department and experience what Police Academy training is like first hand. Students will spend time with our local Federal Agencies, our own 911 Call Center, State and Local Police Departments, and the Onondaga County Sheriff’s.
