College Camp introduces middle schoolers to career exploration

June 7, 2012

From “Annual MSTC College Camp scheduled for June 12” — Central Wisconsin students entering grades sixth through eighth are gearing up for camp twenty12, a hands-on opportunity to explore the careers and crucial skills of tomorrow.  Mid-State Technical College’s (MSTC) annual college camp presents each attendee with the opportunity to participate in three of the following career exploration sessions: Biorefinery, Business & Marketing, Clinical Research Coordinator, Corrections and Law Enforcement, Electrical Power Engineering, Emergency Medical Services and Junior Fire Fighting, Machine Tool, Multi-Media, Nursing Assistant, Urban Forestry, and Welding.

MSTC Enrollment Advisor Betsy Feaster says the June 12 daytime camp filled to capacity quickly this year.

“It is encouraging to hear that so many students recognize the importance of fully exploring their education and career options well before the moment of decision,” said Feaster in a press release.

The primary goal of MSTC’s annual College Camp is to broaden a young person’s perspective of career possibilities through on-site, hands-on, and fun career discovery.  The popular camp’s $30 registration fee includes all three sessions, snacks, lunch, camp gift, and bus transportation.

Those individuals interested in participating in next year’s event, as well as those individuals who desire more information and a tour this summer, should call Betsy Feaster at 715-422-5413.

Transportation is available to camp twenty12 at no extra cost from the following sites: MSTC – Adams County Center in Adams-Friendship; The Store in Auburndale; MSTC – Marshfield Campus in Marshfield; Riverside Park in Nekoosa; 5 Star Lanes in Plover; Christian Life Fellowship in Port Edwards; St. Philip’s Church in Rudolph; MSTC – Stevens Point Campus in Stevens Point and Community Park in Vesper.
