Summer Career Camp

Summer Career Camp

Choosing only one career for the rest of your life is not realistic. At the Summer Career Camp, we teach you how to design a dynamic career that adapts as you change throughout life.

Who should attend

This program is designed for students in grades 10, 11, and 12 looking to jump-start their career. This includes students going into grade 10 this fall and students who are taking a gap year or are upgrading post grade 12.

What to expect

  • Learn how to be an agent of your own career
  • Identify your skills, interests, values and other attributes
  • Practice exploring and researching your career options
  • Connect with professionals who will share their career stories and advice
  • Visit workplaces on and off the University of Alberta campus
  • Map out the next few steps you will take to move forward in your career

2016 Summer Career Camp Report

Career Camp News Clip on CTV Edmonton


“Before this camp, I had never thought of a career as something that was flexible, I thought you had to work in the same job forever. But on the career crawl I realized that I can have many positions throughout my career.”
– Grade 12 student

“I liked how friendly people were on campus, it made me want to go to the U of A so I will definitely be attending the Open House this year”
– Grade 11 student

“I would tell my friends that it definitely helps you with planning your career.  I thought I had a good plan when I came but I really enjoyed learning how to map everything out, it made the idea of finding a career much simpler.”
– Grade 11 student
