I'm currently on vacation in the USA on B2 visa. I just got to know that I need to attend a 7day course in a college in Connecticut in July. It falls within my status. This course is a not for academic credit purpose. I was wondering if this is possible as I don't want to do anything illegal.
If it is not for credit and merely for recreational and NOT vocational purposes .. you should be fine.

It appears from your description that attendance should be fine. Contact the course administrator for clarification.
You should be fine to attend the course, provided that the college does not require otherwise.
