Summer Camps and Youth Programs

We Make Learning Fun

Our youth programs provide fun, safe, hands-on learning environments in which children ages 8 to 14 learn the 4C’s – communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. Our goal is to foster success and individual growth by teaching foundational skills that children can build on throughout their lives. See our catalogs for in-depth workshop descriptions and schedules.

Youth Summer STEM University

We have two camps, one for ages 8-10 and one for ages 11-14. Each camp consists of two workshops. The camp for 11- to 14-year-olds will offer more advanced content. At the end of camp, students receive a certificate of completion and a camp gift.

We offer full- and half-day camp options. Full-day camps meet Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Half-day sessions run from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m.

Youth Policy

The Youth Event Health & Student Program Policies Form must be filled out for all minors (under 18) participating in our classes. A new set of forms must be submitted for every class. All youth forms must be scanned and emailed, faxed or mailed to Continuing Education before the start of class.

Only students who have a signed parental release form granting them permission to leave unattended will be able to leave unaccompanied by an adult. If your child is to go home on their own, make sure you sign that form.
