CMU & CMU Tech’s Summer Camps Offer Career Exploration and Learning Opportunities for Western Colorado Youth

CMU and CMU Tech are hosting an engaging lineup of camps for middle and high school students this summer. Running weekly until August 2, 2024, camps are taking place on the CMU Tech campus, the CMU campus and at the Clifton Community Center.

With more than 100 camps to choose from, there’s a camp tailored to every young mind’s interests. Many camps provide interactive, hands-on learning experiences, allowing students to explore potential career paths and utilize their skills through practical, real-world applications. 

Camps cover a diverse range of subjects including science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics, athletics, culinary arts, music and more.

Certain camps even award certificates upon completion, like the one-day Pediatric First Aid/CPR training camp. The camp equips students with essential first aid skills for working with children and awards a Pediatric CPR Certification upon completion.

Fifth graders entering sixth grade in the fall of 2024 are eligible for middle school camps, and eighth graders entering ninth grade in the fall of 2024 are eligible for high school camps.

Spaces are still available in most of the remaining camps. To view the full list of camps and to enroll, visit or call 970.255.2800.
