This camp brings science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), and skilled trades to camp participants ages 14 to 19, in a fun and challenging way through classes, interaction with skilled professionals, and hands-on projects. This is great camp for young people interested in learning more about engineering, business, vocational, technical and entrepreneurial careers.
