Applications are now open for incoming 7th and 8th graders to attend the Dakota Dreams Career Exploration Summer Camps. Applications are due March 31, so please help share the news with students and parents.

These five-day career camps will allow students to explore exciting careers, meet professionals, and dive into hands-on activities that unleash creativity and ignite passion. Below are the camp dates and locations. Find the application form here. Each camp will accept 100 participants. As mentioned earlier, the deadline to apply is March 31. Students are expected to be notified of acceptance via email by mid-April 2024.
