The Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas has opened registration for 2021 Camp HYPE sessions. Camp HYPE is a week-long career exploration camp for teens focusing on developing soft skills and exposure to career pathways and job opportunities in the Greater Wichita Area. Multiple camp sessions are scheduled focusing on different employment sectors in the region made possible through financial sponsorships by local employer partners. Participants will earn up to a $125 cash stipend paid upon full attendance and completion of the camp. It is expected that the youth treat Camp HYPE as a real job to earn the stipend. Camp HYPE food sponsors are Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Lane Enterprises. 

All Camp HYPE sessions are limited to 20 participants and will be held at the Wichita Workforce Center, 2021 N. Amidon. Teens may only participate in one camp; those who have previously completed Camp HYPE will not be eligible to attend sessions again in 2021.


Camp HYPE session details are listed below, as each camp is designed for certain ages or grades. Registration is available at
