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

It’s never too early for young people to explore potential occupations and fields of study. One such opportunity comes up in August at Front Range Community College.

Cool Careers Camp is an opportunity for students age 13 to 16 to explore careers in a very-hands-on environment.

FRCC instructors will lead small-group, project-based career discovery sessions in astronomy, emergency medical services, criminal justice/CSI, interior design, automotive technology, welding technology, paralegal careers, forestry/wildlife, landscape design, computer programming, and veterinary technology.

The camp runs from 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 4 to 7, and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Larimer Campus, 4616 S. Shields St., Fort Collins. Snacks are provided each day. Campers should bring a sack lunch on Aug. 8 when the afternoon session will include tours of Fort Collins-area industries.

The cost is $159. Some scholarships may be available.

To register, call (970) 204-8686, go online to, or in person or by mail to FRCC Continuing Education, 1501 Academy Court, Fort Collins, CO 80524.

Registration deadline is July 9.
