Teen Career Exploration Camps Ages: 13–17

It’s never too early to start planning for your future! Spend your summer with us by enrolling in IVCC Career Exploration Camps. Taught by IVCC faculty, the goal of the camps is to expose students to careers in various fields of study through interactive discussion and hands on simulation. Essential skills, needed to succeed not only on the job, but in life, will be incorporated into each camp. Camps will cover careers in the following fields:  Health, Manufacturing/Automotive, and Welding. Each camp is 3-4 days in duration and will be held in IVCC’s state of the art labs. 2022 Teen Exploration camps are partially funded with grant money.
