Abstract
There are four soft skills of higher education graduates needed to face the Industrial Revolution 4.0 era, namely critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, and collaboration (4C). To compete with other human resources globally and achieve success in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0, the vocational students also must be equipped with soft skill other than competent scientific skills. However, higher education still focuses on hard skills, not on soft skills; thus, additional activities are needed outside of teaching and learning activities. One way to strengthen 4C is by a summer camp. This article was a literature study that discusses the learning outcomes and strategies of developing critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, and collaboration for vocational students during the summer camp. The learning outcomes obtained by this activity were the ability to evaluate the causal relationship of a problem, the ability to represent new ideas, the ability to exchange information, and the ability to integrate knowledge with other disciplines. Learning strategies that were done to improve the competence of 4C were applying student-centered learning instruction with creative themes and a fun way in the form of presentation, open discussion, and interview in the form of groups consisting of multidisciplinary students.
