Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC) has opened registration for its Summer Career Camp 2017. The camp offers high school students a stimulating experience that will assist them in making informed academic and career decisions.

The camp will take place over the course of two weeks, from July 9 - 20, at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) Student Center, between 8am and 2pm. The camp is open to both boys and girls, with separate classes held for each group.

The QCDC camp will feature a variety of activities and educational programmes, as well as stimulating workshops, designed to provide students with practical skillsets and knowledge that will inspire them when planning their academic and career paths.

The camp offers opportunities for site visits and job shadowing programmes at leading organisations in Qatar, providing participants with first-hand knowledge of workplace environments, and insights into career and professional life, which will help them match their abilities and skills with various career choices.

The camp will also familiarise students with Qatar’s labour market dynamics and the future needs of the nation.

It will feature a variety of recreational, sports, and educational activities. Participants will attend a series of handicraft workshops that aim to equip students with a wide range of personal and life skills as well as to bolster their self-confidence, communication skills, and teamwork among other skills that will come in use when entering the professional world. Students will then have the opportunity to showcase and sell the work created during the handicraft sessions at a special exhibition before the end of the Summer Career Camp.

Registration fees are reduced if applicants register before June 15 or more than one sibling student applies.
