(6/9/20 UPDATE) While we had hoped to welcome summer campers back to campus in July, the leadership team at Trident Technical College has determined that we will not be able to run our Kids' College and Teen University summer camps programs this year. This decision is due to a number of factors, chief among them is ensuring the health and safety of students, faculty and staff amid the lingering COVID-19 pandemic. Continuing Education will process full refunds for canceled registrations using the payment method originally provided to us. We are saddened and disappointed to have to suspend our summer youth programs this year. We hope to provide a robust round of offerings next summer, and, in the meantime, we encourage you to check out the many Saturday youth classes scheduled throughout the fall and spring.

About our Summer Camps

TTC’s summer camp programs are designed to help campers develop and expand their interests, stimulate creativity, make new friends and most important, have FUN learning! We offer hands-on, engaging summer camps and year-round courses in a variety of subjects like computer technology, life skills, creative arts, math and science and culinary arts.

What better way to spend a summer week than learning and having fun? TTC’s Kids’ College offers a variety of camps for children ages 7-11. Teen University camps are designed just for teens and preteens aged 12-17. Children and teens can learn anything from how to design video games and comic books to how the American legal system works, all while developing leadership and social skills, fostering creativity and having a blast.

Bring your camper for the day! Sign up for a morning and afternoon session, pack a lunch, and we'll take care of the rest! You can even drop your child off early by enrolling them in Camp Sunrise.

Camps are open for registration as of Feb. 15, 2020.
