students from sixth grade to completion of their bachelor's degree. There

are three phases of LEGACY: Craftsman, Junior Apprentice and Apprentice.

Details on this summer's LEGACY phases are listed below.

 Craftsman Phase

                - The sixth and seventh grade camp dates are June 19th-23rd.

                - The eighth and ninth grade dates are June 26th-30th.

The LEGACY program hopes to keep students coming back each year and

ultimately prepare them for a civilian STEM career in the Air Force.
