ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Officials with the Marine Corps Logistics Base are hosting Teen C.A.R.R.O.L.L. University Summer Camp.
The camp began June 13 and will continue until June 17.
The purpose of the camp is to give teens and youths to have a chance to advance lifelong learning skills that will enhance their self-confidence, promote personal initiatives and personal fitness.
"One of the things we want kids to understand is that everybody will not be able to go to college. So they have other opportunities and some of those opportunities may include going to a technical school. Maybe acquiring an associates degree or maybe going into the armed forces as well," said Base Education Services Officer, Natalie Tomblin.
This is the first year the camp is being held.
C.A.R.R.O.L.L. stands for Caring, Aspiring, Radiant, Revolutionary, Outstanding and Lively Learning.
