For rising freshmen, sophomores, and Juniors GEAR UP in partnership with Appalachian State University is excited to announce a variety of summer camps and college campus tours this summer.  Visits and tours include Appalachian State, Western Carolina, East Carolina, UNC Wilmington, UNC Asheville, colleges and universities in the Greensboro/Winston Salem area, and a variety of mountain area community colleges.  In addition, those interested in the health care field can visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta.  Some of the tours do allow for parents to go along.  I highly encourage you to sign up for these great opportunities as soon as possible.  Space is limited.

Not only do we have the college and campus tours but GEAR UP is also offering summer camps in engineering and web design here in Burke County.   

Applications and information can be found on the East Burke HS webpage or on our Facebook page.

Also, attached is the registration form and information about each tour or camp.  Please contact your child's counselor if you have any additional questions.
