Sneak Peak at College Camp 2021

Dive Into Your Future!

You don’t need SCUBA gear to see your dream career up close! Students entering 6th,7th, and 8th grade in fall 2021 are invited to join Mid-State Technical College for a day filled with hands-on exploration. Students will embark on a hands-on “deep sea” expedition into Mid-State’s exciting degree programs and feel like a college student while practicing the skills needed in today’s workforce. It’s an adventure to remember—and build a future on.

This full day event will give students the opportunity to explore five exciting Mid-State programs! Our guests at College Camp always have tons of fun getting to know how it feels to be a college student while trying their hand at the skills needed in today's workforce.
