rot1Valparaiso University will offer an academic camp for elementary and middle school students June 16 through June 27.

The camp, “Summer Smart, Summer Fun,” continues the legacy of the late Valpo professor Alan Bloom, who led its development in 2013. The purpose of the program is to help children to learn about the world in an environment full of fun and exploration. Participants will create special projects, science experiments, and original stories to take home and share with parents and friends.

Faculty from Valparaiso University and teachers from the local area will lead topics that are sure to make this camp a memorable one. Interactive courses include robotics, Spanish, creative writing, geography, history, physics, chemistry, and astronomy.

The two-week camp runs Monday through Friday, June 16-27. Cost is $300 per child, and scholarships are available.
