In summer 2007 Calhoun Community College and the Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce presented the first annual Summer Welding and Electrical Technology (SWeETy) camp for girls.  This year marks the 15th anniversary of the camp, which has introduced hundreds of area high school girls to the many career opportunities available in technical industries in our area.


The 15th annual SWeETy camp will be held June 13 – 16 on the Calhoun Decatur campus.   The camp is open to girls in grades ninth through twelfth grades and registration is limited to 24 campers. Camp registration fee is $25.00.  SWeETy camp is presented each year by Calhoun and the Chamber of Commerce to help create awareness among high school girls of the great careers available in career and technical fields in our area and around the county. 


Presenting sponsor for the 2022 camp is Indorama Ventures.


The Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce is excited to offer need-based scholarships for students interested in participating in the 2022 SWeETy Camp at Calhoun Community College. A limited number of scholarships are available and will be provided on a first come first serve basis.   Camp registration and information about the scholarships can be found at


This year’s camp will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and from 8:30 – 1:30 on Thursday in the Advanced Technology Center on the Calhoun Decatur campus.
