The CREATE Summer Academy is a six-day, five-night program that introduces students to careers in construction, re-development, engineering, architecture and the trades. Students will design and build a project for a local nonprofit, complete a needs assessment, meet industry executives, tour active job sites, explore Sacramento and stay at CSU, Sacramento.
The CREATE Summer Camp is open to high school students that are part of a construction related program. Preference for the program is given to students participating in the CREATE Mentoring, Design Build, BITA and ACE Mentor Programs.
The Registration Fee is $1250 and includes all housing, food, transportation and supply expenses during the course of the Summer Camp. Scholarship Award Recipients will have a reduced registration fee of $150 ($1,100 Scholarship). Financial aid is available to cover the additional $150 for those who qualify.
Students are responsible for their own transportation in getting to Sacramento State University on Sunday, July 14 and transportation home on Friday, July 19. Students are also asked to bring a laptop or tablet device if available for design activities. Students are supervised by staff from the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange Education Foundation and contracted college mentors.
