Get ready for college with summer camps for high school students

How Will Your Teen Spend the Summer?

How about exploring careers and preparing for college.

Making a decision about what college to attend, navigating the application process, financial aid, and choosing a major can be difficult, and sometimes confusing, for high school students and their families. Accomplishing all that and still not knowing where your career interests lie can be overwhelming and can result in students spending extra money and years in college. Career exploration helps students create realistic educational and career plans.

High school students from Macomb and surrounding counties can learn more about potential career paths and preparing for college at Oakland University’s Career Exploration and College Readiness camps.

Led by Oakland University faculty and expert presenters, students will engage in lively discussions, hands-on activities and field trips to learn about various career fields, the knowledge, skills and abilities required, and the preparation needed to enter those fields. All camps are held at the Oakland University Anton/Frankel Center in Mount Clemens.

This summer, five different camps are offered:
June 24-28, 2013 8am-3pm Career Exploration Camp Or July 22-26
July 15-18, 2013 9am-3pm Business, Beyond the Basics Camp
July 29-31, 2013 8am-4pm Nursing & Health Sciences Camp
August 5-9, 2013 8am-3pm Engineering & Computer Science Camp
August 12-14, 2013 8am-3pm College Readiness Boot Camp

Cost for the camps range from $95 to $285 and include lunch, snacks and a camp T-shirt. Spaces are filling quickly. Learn more and register today at Oakland.edu/Macombcamp or call toll-free at (855) 222-6909 or e-mail oumacomb@oakland.edu.
