Each year at Saint Paul College, our Workforce Training & Continuing Education department host summer camps for young students providing experience in growing, in-demand career fields.
Throughout the 2022 summer, more than 200 students attended summer camps for these growing career fields:
- Scrubs Healthcare Career Exploration Camp – over 100 attendees
- Advance Manufacturing (three separate weeks)
- Solar Energy – NEW THIS YEAR!
- Video Game Design
- Cosmetology & Esthetics
- Culinary Arts
Students attending these summer programs ranged in age from 13 to 18. Each camp introduces youth to specific program opportunities and demonstrates what Saint Paul College offers. This highly successful program is sponsored by more than two dozen supporters, including Saint Paul Public Schools. Additionally, the MN State Office of Higher Education,M Health Fairview,
Force Center of Excellence and 3M provided grants to help students offset program costs.
Students loved the summer camps:
I loved learning the different skills and completing hands-on activities. Meeting new friends while learning new career fields really excited me!
I feel ready for college and am now interested in a career field I never thought of before!
The 2023 Summer Camp will include 20+ hands-on sessions, all introducing youth to various career paths during the week of camp. Registration opens on January 16, 2023. Check the Workforce Training and
Continuing Education Summer Camps webpage in the Spring to register.
