What our past students say!

[Washington Transportation Camp] showed me all of the different jobs in transportation, how almost anyone can work in it, and all the possible jobs I could pursue.

Student at WSU Camp, 2023

The tours were most beneficial to me because they gave our group a unique insight into transportation’s role in our community. I especially enjoyed the tour of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Traffic Management Center because it was very informative and educational on the topic of our regional transportation.

Both Ollie and Annie were really good counselors, they definitely made a great camp even better, Lingzi did a great job of keeping us all occupied and keeping the camp running!
