High School Connections Summer Programs

High school students in Clackamas County can participate in college credit programs all year long! Clackamas Community College has four High School Connections programs offered during the regular school year as well as summer programming.

Career Technical Education (CTE) Summer Camps

CCC offers fun and exciting Career and Technical Education (CTE) summer camps that provide college credit opportunities to local high school students, completely free! Camps are open to students who live and go to school in Clackamas County. Students must be entering grades 9-12 in fall 2023. 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 to determine placement. The weighted lottery will provide priority placement for underserved students (students of color, students with disabilities, students with low socio-economic status and students with limited access to accelerated learning programs).
