Choose the camp that best matches your talents, passions, and future goals.

Summer Camp 

Each summer, PTC hosts camps on its North Fayette Campus for high school seniors and recent graduates. Camps such as Camp Patissierie, Camp Energy, Camp Design, Camp CSI, Camp Med, Camp Trades and Camp Technology present specific careers by immersing interested students in the technologies and skills fundamental to the field through classroom projects and lab time. In the past, participants have investigated a mock crime scene, drawn blood from a mannequin arm, created an interactive e-advertising campaign, and built a Battle Bot for competition.

What makes PTC's summer camps so special is that students learn alongside other students who share their interests and passions, meet new friends, and experience PTC's campus and student activities through a three-day residential experience.
