Summer Camps

Expanding Horizons Career & Technical Education FREE Summer Camps

Free summer camps give students hands-on training for possible careers

Woodworking, welding, drafting, engineering, job-shadowing a health care professional – these are examples of the numerous hands-on activities available at no cost to Douglas County middle and high school students at local schools this summer.

For a second straight year, the Expanding Horizons Summer Camps were offered through a grant secured by the Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub. The camps, which emphasize Career & Technical Education, are designed to provide information and experience to students interested in exploring various career paths. They are offered in partnership with local CTE programs, Umpqua Training & Employment, Umpqua Community College, Douglas Education Service District, Oregon State University and the Area Health Education of Southwest Oregon.
