    Camp Salsa provides opportunities for about 15 local high school students to work from beginning to end on a project to foster skills that can be transferred into the workforce.  The main components of the Camp Salsa experience are:
    *  Grow:  trainees will learn to maintain a garden.
    *  Cook:  trainees will work in a team to research and produce a unique salsa recipe.
    * Sell:  trainees will learn to create a business plan, package their salsa, create a brand, label their product, and then sell their salsa.
    Upon completion of the first four weeks of the program, students will receive one high school class credit from Columbia Public Schools (Urban Ecology).  In addition, students will be paid for working hours for eight weeks of the program through the C.A.R.E. program.
    Applications for Camp Salsa can be found in the Counseling Office or online at:
