Massapequa Student’s BOCES Designing Summer

Massapequa student Veronica Horan learned basic printing processes, principals of design, color theory, typography and logo designing in the Graphic Design program at the Nassau BOCES and Hofstra Summer Camp.

Nassau BOCES partnered with Hofstra’s Continuing Education program, as well as the college’s Summer Camp, to offer a variety of exciting and fun educational opportunities for young people this summer. Students entering grades 6-11 were offered a number of programs providing experiences in career exploration, arts, sciences, outdoor education and more.

Other programs offered a variety of experiences in fields such as Aviation, Construction Trades, Culinary Arts and Veterinary Medicine. Some programs were offered at three separate levels — Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced.

Programs were conducted in different locations, such as Nassau BOCES’ state-of-the-art Joseph M. Barry Career & Technical Education Center in Westbury, Caumsett State Historic Park in Lloyd Harbor, and the Nassau BOCES Brookville Environmental Education Center in Brookville.

Through two featured programs this year, Nassau BOCES Outdoor and Environmental Education enabled campers to discover the unique habitats of Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve and the Brookville Outdoor Education site. “A Field Study in Marine Biology” gave campers a chance to become Marine Biologists in training.

In “STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Marine Exploration Technology,” teams of campers built an underwater ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle).
