The 2015 Career Exploration Camps have ended, but please come back in March of 2016 to see what we will have available next summer!


Tidewater Community College’s weekly College and Career Exploration Camps are offered on TCC’s four campuses in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach.

At a TCC summer camp, your child will:

  • be exposed to college life
  • learn from TCC faculty
  • have hands-on experiences in a variety of fields, from science and technology to the arts

They’ll explore things like 3-D printing, computer-aided design, crime scene investigations, creative writing, wildlife and the environment – and much more! Rising 12th-graders can prepare for their transition into college. Camps will have limited enrollment, so your child will have a personalized experience.

As a bonus, every camper will receive a FREE career interest assessment!
