CHAR is proud to be sending four students this July to Tech Trek Camp at UC Davis from July 23rd through the 29th. The interview Team of Mary Duval, Michelle Favro-Farruggia, Therese Favro and Elaine Bemis selected one student from Lichen K-8 Elementary in Citrus Heights and three from Mills Middle School in the Folsom Cordova School District.
Tech Trek tuition is $900 per student. Watch for fundraising activities throughout the year. If you would like to donate any amount, please email us for details.
