“Art, making and technology are woven into all of our STEAM Maker
camps,” said Joan Perch, program and outreach
coordinator. “In every camp, campers have lots of fun developing
real-world skills and experimenting with 21st century
technologies on creative projects. These are wonderful camps
for all students, including those who might not be interested in
technology, but are creative and love to make and build.”
Registration is now open for all of LCCC’s STEAM Maker summer
camps, part of LCCC’s College for Kids and Teens offerings. All
camps for elementary and middle school students run from 8:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily at LCCC’s Patsie C. and Dolores Jeneé
Campana Center for Ideation and Invention. Camps for high school
students run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday (no
Friday sessions). All camps are for students entering the grades
Camps are grouped by grade and guided by an incredible staff of
artists, educators, makers, technicians and college students.
The low camper to staff ratio provides each camper with the
support they need to take on individual and group art,
technology, science and outdoor activities.
