Students in the Opportunity Zone have the chance to get a leg up on the school year through multiple summer "bridge" camps this month.

The camps - which will be held at Brainerd High, Dalewood Middle, East Lake Academy and Orchard Knob Middle schools - are intensive academic programs for students transitioning into one of the schools, as rising sixth- or ninth-graders.
