Camp4U is Endorsed!

After successful completion of the Camp 4 U experience, all participants will receive Continuing Education Credits (CECs).

CEC's are a tracking mechanism that allows individuals to document their involvement in varied professional development activities. They are compatible with Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that are often used by other professional certification programs such as teaching or healthcare. Each CEC is representative of the number of hours of engaged learning (1 CEC = 1 hour of learning). Use these CECs on your resume, in your professional development portfolio or to share with an employer!
