Springbrook High School Freshman Summer Camp
Get a jump start on high school, meet teachers, make new friends and learn about some of our course offerings! Ninth grade can set the tone for a successful high school career. For some students it can be a hard transition from middle school. Every year, Springbrook High School offers a one week transition program called the Freshman Summer Camp. We use this camp to help allay the fears and preconceptions of incoming 9th grade students by making sure that students have both a positive academic as well as social experience in a small setting. Students take four courses each day. One course, High School 101, offers a chance to get student questions answered, learn their way around the building, and develop a relationship with a 9th grade teacher. Our three other courses come from our variety of school programs including Art, Culinary and Science/Technology. Please consider enrolling your incoming Springbrook Blue Devil in our camp this summer! Contact John Weinshel with questions: John_R_Weinshel@mcpsmd.org
