Teens Can Explore Careers at Cool Careers Camp at FRCC Campus in Fort Collins

Students age 13 to 16 can explore careers in a very hands-on Cool Careers Camp Aug. 5 to 9 at Front Range Community College’s Larimer Campus.

“This camp received overwhelmingly positive comments from teens and parents alike last year, so we’re offering it again,” said Pat Gannon of the Continuing Education Program.

Camp participants will explore career options in astronomy, emergency medical services, criminal justice/crime scene investigation, interior design, welding technology, automotive technology, veterinary medicine, and forestry/wildlife.

Front Range Community College instructors will lead small-group, project–based, career discovery sessions. On the last day of camp, participants will have career exploration and camp celebration activities.

The camp runs from 8 a.m. to noon each day at the Larimer Campus, Harmony Road and Shields Street in Fort Collins. The camp fee of $139 includes beverages, snacks, materials, and supplies. Full and partial scholarship assistance may be available.
