Tools 4 Life Camp

We will not be offering Tools 4 Life Camp for the summer of 2024.

We are reviewing staffing, programming, and financial considerations for the future of this camp which has been a mainstay of our summer offerings. Please reach out to the ANC principals with any questions.

Tools 4 Life is a career and life skills camp designed to help teenagers gain the tools and confidence needed to take the next step after high school. This camp offers a unique opportunity for you to learn and grow through a variety of experiences.

Tools 4 Life is open to incoming juniors and seniors. The camp offers seven days of activities and workshops in a rich environment of mentoring, personal growth and networking for life. During camp, we hold workshops and activities on campus, and also visit nearby colleges and take a career day trip. Campers are housed in dormitories and meals are included.
