Some kids see summer as a time to relax and unwind, to get away from the hustle and bustle of school and studying.

But some roll their sleeves up and get to work.

Those kids were taking care of business at Concord Regional Technical Center this week, enjoying a summer camp where they could hone their job skills and try careers on for size.

Campers could be seen applying makeup, baking tasty treats, hammering away at a “simulated” tree house, getting their hands dirty working on an engine block, and more.

Campers will be able to look back and admire their handiwork when the session wraps up Friday.

After that, they might just have to go back to relaxing.
