PERU, IL – Registration for Carus Corporation’s 2018 Summer Science Camp will begin at 8:30 a.m. April 27th. The free camp, which is open to students entering 6th grade in the fall, will take place June 4th-8th.
This year, campers may be in for an additional treat – a chance to learn inside St. Bede Academy’s brand-new STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) addition. St. Bede will once again house the camp, with the school’s Chemistry Department Head, Dan Fitzpatrick, leading as Camp Director.
Carus is also working with the Canal Corridor Association to bring back Camp Day at the Canal. Always popular, canal day offers campers a science-filled canal boat ride and mule meet and greet.
Camp runs from 9am-noon each day with, a graduation ceremony taking place on Friday. Families are invited to celebrate the end of camp with their kids, as each student receives a camp certificate.
