What is Charger Camp?

Charger Camp is Charlotte Wood Middle School's new student orientation for incoming 6th graders and new 7th and 8th graders.  It will help get your child accustomed to Charlotte Wood and make the first day at a new school and our eventual return to campus a little less intimidating. 

Due to the challenges of COVID-19 Charger Camp 2020 will be all virtual.  There will be various online activities scheduled for students to meet staff, Leadership students, student Q&A and more.
