Summer Programs

High school students in Clackamas County can participate in college credit programs all year long! Clackamas Community College (CCC) has five High School Connections programs offered during the regular school year as well as two summer offerings: Career and Technical Education (CTE) Summer Camps and the Summer Scholars program.

CTE Summer Camps

Free CTE Summer Camps offer students the opportunity to experience college during week-long hands-on classes focused on career and technical areas such as horticulture, health sciences or industrial technology. The CTE Summer Camps are open to students who live and go to school in Clackamas County and are entering ninth through 12th grade in fall 2019.

Camps are free, thanks to funding from the Clackamas Promise Grant, provided by the Oregon Department of Education. Lunch will be provided and transportation assistance is available from the student’s high school to the college.

Camps have limited space and will use a weighted lottery for placement. The weighted lottery will give priority placement to students from historically underrepresented groups (students of color, students with disabilities, students with low socio-economic status, and students with limited access to accelerated learning programs).

Registration closes on May 1.
