Eighth graders going into the ninth grade in Fall 2019 are eligible for high school camps.

WCCC and CMU proudly continue their multi-year partnership with the Northwest Regional Council of El Pomar Foundation — known as Reach Your Peak — to create excitement about learning and motivate students towards further education.
