Summer Camps

2 girls baking

Each summer we open our doors... and classrooms... and labs, to 7th, 8th and 9th graders from around the county.

In our four-day, career-themed camps, students can explore a variety of our programs. Campers get hands-on with the same equipment and technology that professionals in these fields use every day as they explore their future AND gain real skills. Students have so much fun they forget they’re learning!

Campers dive deep into one career field or, in our exploration camps, they sample a different career field each day.

Located right here at the Tech Center, camps are for students entering 7th, 8th and 9th grades in the fall. Camps run from 9am-2pm. Lunch is provided and includes an entree and salad bar with vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. Plus, all campers who register by May 31, receive a t-shirt!
