Help Us Create More Summer Camps

Milwaukee Area Technical College offered over a dozen summer camps FREE of cost for high school students in June, which were popular with the students, parents and the community.

Many of you also asked about the availability of similar programs for middle schoolers.

In response to this demand, MATC is now designing additional summer camp opportunities for students in grades 6 through 10 to be offered June 10 through July 25, 2019. Most of the camps will be offered FREE of cost to the students. Space will be limited.

If you are interested in summer camps for 6th through 10th graders, please complete the form below to provide MATC with your contact information. We will contact you with the specific information about upcoming opportunities and the next steps for registration.
