Energy Camp Louisiana

Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) "I wanted to pursue a career in health science so that is what really brought me here. But once I got here, that kind of changed my view point of jobs that consisted of science," said Jenaya Johnson.

Energy Camp Louisiana is designed to help students find a career path through science experiments and exercises.

More than 20 campers will finish the camp with a different perspective of the energy field.

"For them to be able to go out to the field and to see these things hands on, it becomes more than just words on a paper or somebody just standing in front of a group of students just talking about what they do. For them to actually see it in action and then they can actually picture themselves in that place doing those things," said Willie Henderson.

Sponsors say participating in this program can help provide future job opportunities for the students.

"As an energy company we are looking at always bringing in talented individuals to participate in our company. This is the forum for them to get that exposure," said Daniel Echols.

Campers say they are optimistic about the program and its activities.

"I've learned so much in the past two days, I honestly feel like I am going to learn a lot of different things about science and the way it works. And this could also help me to be more social with people. It can change my social skills and things like that. It also might make me think of different career paths," said Jenaya Johnson.

Energy Camp Louisiana is made up of students from Natchitoches, Red River, and DeSoto Parishes.
