Not all Baldwin County children will spend this summer holed-up in their basements playing video games or attending nature camps — some will attend a different kind of camp where they’ll learn what it takes to excel in high school.

Baldwin High School Freshman Academy, that houses all ninth grade students in a single section of the school building, is hosting the first-of-its-kind BHS Leadership Camp 2007 for rising ninth-grade students.

“It will help prepare the rising ninth-grade students transition to Baldwin High, helping them get acclimated to their surroundings, to preview content and work on social issues so they’re ready to start school in the fall,” said Runee Sallad, assistant principal and director of the freshman academy.

Rising freshmen are confronted by varied social challenges, possibly making their new home at the high school uncomfortable, Sallad said.
