Middle school students will have an opportunity to participate in FREE, five-day career exploration camps this summer. Hosted on three South Dakota college campuses, the camps will allow incoming 7th and 8th grade students to experience 10 career paths. By the end of the residential camp, students will have a better understanding of themselves, their career interests, and how their education connects to these professions. Each camp will accept 50 participants. If availability is limited, preference will be given to students with need.
