Boot Camp for teens

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The African-American Military History Museum will have its third annual “Back-to-School Boot Camp" Wednesday.

This will be a chance for more than a dozen kids to mentally prepare for the year.

General manager, Latoya Coleman said, "It's a three-day camp. The first day, we focus on foundation and framing. Our leader, Shuntasia Coleman, who is in the military, will discuss the importance of framing their lives for a successful school year."

Norman said they will spend a lot of time teaching kids the importance of having good grades. And on the second day, there will be some physical play.

"They’re going to have an obstacle course. They’re going to focus on mental and physical strength. And then the last day, they’re going to actually create vision boards where they outline their interest and goals for the new school year," said Norman.

Usually, the boot camp only has ten students, but the museum extended it to 20 this year.

"They can ask us questions and we'll give them our best advice, so it's really a good time for us to fellowship with them and talk about the school year, some of the problems they face," said Norman.

The boot camp is from Wednesday- Friday and it’s from 2-4 p.m.

There are five spots open. If you are interested in signing your kid up, you can go to the museum and register your kid there.
