Central Wisconsin students entering grades 6 through 8 are gearing up for Camp MSTC – 2015, a hands-on opportunity to explore the careers and crucial skills of tomorrow. The camp is held at Mid-State Technical College’s Wisconsin Rapids Campus each June.
Each attendee will participate in three career exploration sessions of their choice. Sessions offered this year include Civil Engineering Technology-Highway Technician, Criminal Justice-Corrections, Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement, Early Childhood Education, Emergency Medical Technician and Junior Fire Fighting, Farm Operations, Health and Wellness Promotion, Health Informatics and Information Management, IT Software Developer, Machine Tool Technician, Renewable Energy, Respiratory Therapist, Surgical Technologist, Urban Forestry, and Welding.
The primary goal of MSTC’s annual College Camp is to broaden a young person’s perspective of career possibilities through onsite, hands-on career discovery in a fun and engaging way. The popular camp’s $35 registration fee includes all three sessions, snacks, lunch, camp gift, and bus transportation.
