DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe. Camelback DECA has been an active club at Camelback for the past 45 years. The marketing students participate in DECA Regional, State and National Competitions each year. Many of our students have won DECA Scholarships throughout the years that are offered at the state and national levels. Besides the competition our chapter has been involved in a Chicago or New York City Marketing Field Trip, running a successful school store inside the classroom where our taught skills become reality and all the profits are given back to enhance the club and our school projects. Toastmaster's skills are practiced and a speak-off contest between peers and classmates are one of our favorite events of the year. Our major community service project is our food drive on Halloween Night. The food collected helps fill the Camelback's Food Bank that was started by our DECA Students and now managed by Camelback Interact Club.
