An Elkhart Central High School history trip planned for June still has open spots, according to organizer Steve Starzyk.

Starzyk, who teaches U.S. history at Central, said the trip is open to any high school-age student in Elkhart County, even students who don't attend Elkhart Community Schools.

Students who go on the trip will be visiting historical locations in Gettysburg, Pa.; Washington, D.C.; Annapolis, Md.;  Philadelphia; Boston; New York City and others. They could earn a year of history credit by going on the trip and taking a two-week class, Starzyk said.

The trip also involves camping in an effort to make it more affordable for students. Dates for this year's trip haven't been set yet but it will most likely happen in mid-June or early July. The cost is $650, which is reduced from previous years due to community donations.

For more information about the trip contact Starzyk at 573-295-4989, ext. 3053, or sstarzyk@elkhart.k12.in.us.
