Southeastern Community College will partner with the Whiteville and Tabor City branches of the State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) this summer to offer free financial literacy camps to rising eighth graders at four local schools. The camps will meet Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m., on the following dates: July 11 – 14 at Tabor City Middle School; July 18 – 21 at Hallsboro Middle School; July 25 – 28 at Chadbourn Middle School and August 1 – 4 at Central Middle School. Lunch will be provided daily. Enrollment is limited to 20 students per camp. Attendees must be participants in SCC’s Educational Talent Search Program.

The four-day camps will offer hands-on activities to teach youth the concepts of saving, budgeting, and entrepreneurship. Local SECU staff will lead camp activities using Biz Kid$, a credit-union-backed, award-winning public television series for middle-school students.

Interested students or parents should contact their Educational Talent Search advisor/counselor to apply. Tabor City Middle and Hallsboro Middle School students should contact Beverly Ballard at (910) 642-7141, ext. 212 or beverly.ballard@sccnc.edu.
