Summer Programs

High school students in Clackamas County can participate in college credit programs all year long! Clackamas Community College (CCC) has five High School Connections programs offered during the regular school year as well as summer programming.

CTE Summer Camps

Over 360 students signed up for the free Career and Technical Education (CTE) Summer Camps. Camps are free, thanks to funding from the Clackamas Promise Grant, provided by the Oregon Department of Education. Lunch will be provided and transportation assistance is available from the student's high school to the college.

Camps have limited space and a weighted lottery was used to determine placement. The weighted lottery gave priority placement to students from historically underrepresented groups (students of color, students with disabilities, students with low socio-economic status and students with limited access to accelerated learning programs).

Students and families have been notified about camp placement. Students who were placed into camp have until May 24 to complete necessary steps. Students who are on the wait list will be notified on May 29 about potential placement. Students and families who have requested transportation assistance will receive additional information by June 7.

Note: Students from the North Clackamas School District can request a release from their high school to participate in camp on Monday and Tuesday. Students can join camp on Tuesday, June 18, but will not be able to register for college credit. Students are not able to join camp after Tuesday. Students are not able to attend camp for partial days, camp runs from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
