Calling all Students and Parents!
Free One-Day Career Camp for Thurston County Students!
The Thurston Chamber Foundation is launching a new, free, one-day career fair called Career Camp on Saturday, March 18, 2023 from 8:30 am to 1 pm at Chinook Middle School!
Career Camp is a chance for middle-school students to explore careers in sectors that are growing. Students can participate in hands-on activities, talk to professionals working in those fields and connect with industry leaders who are hiring. The following high-growth sectors will have representatives at Career Camp:
- Hands-On Careers
- Customer Service
- Information Technology
There will be three sessions for students as well as a time to explore the Career Camp Resource EXPO.
While students are in “camp”, parents and guardians can attend an informational session and learn about available resources and steps students can take to land internships & mentorships and discover on-the job-training opportunities
Pre-registration will open February 15, and is first come first served and limited to 65 seats in each career pathway.
Students – Saturday you will check in at the registration desk and receive an name badge with your classroom assignment for your career sessions. We try to keep everyone with their top career path but may need to switch to your alternate choice if classes are full.
Parents – Your sessions are open to your selection and you will not be assigned to specific Parent session. As seating capacity is limited in the student sessions, we reserve student sessions for 6th – 8th grade students only and ask parents to attend the parent session.
