We are so glad you were able to join us on the IWU campus for these fun and exciting summer activities.  Thank you for enrolling in the IWU Young Scholars Day Camps 2015.

We anticipate an exciting, engaging 2 weeks for all participants again next year!

Theatre camp includes: stage combat, acting workshops, scenic design workshops, reading Shakespeare, how to audition, plus putting on your show!

Science camps include: 3D printing, extracting strawberry DNA, generating energy by pedaling a bike or turning a crank – lots of fun and exciting hands-on activities!

2015 important dates:  Camp Meet and Greet for Science Camps- Monday July 6th, 7:30 – 9:00 am 

This event is a chance to stop in the Center for Natural Sciences Atrium to say hi to the teachers, meet the IWU professors, & find out what is in your kid’s Young Scholars kit while your child checks in for his or her first day of camp.   Grab a coffee or tea and some breakfast nosh for the road on your way to work.  Stop in for a 1-minute hello, a 3- minute tour, or a 5-minute visit and grab a to-go cup for your morning commute.  If you can stay a bit longer, you can enjoy a more leisurely coffee chat and learn about  the CNS labs, building and facilities the camp will be using. 

Closing event and reception for Science Camps –    Thursday, July 16th 2:30 pm 

Friends and family are invited to share in this special conclusion of the annual Young Scholars Day Camp.  See what the kids have been up to and enjoy refreshments with your child’s class, the teachers, camp staff, and IWU faculty. IWU Young Scholars will present some of their work in the IWU Student Center Main Lounge/ Jocelyn Atrium. 

There are a few more details we would like you to share with us. We have a checklist of items we will need when you arrive to camp your first day.


Young Scientists: We will have you think about  choosing a major in the camp (just to determine interests, and you can change it at any time). What are your current interests – do you like Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental Studies, Art, Photography, Writing?  Some of the overlaps across the different activities might surprise you.

Please go here to register for after-hours supervision.

Procedure on Release of Kids:

The Transportation Options form can be found here.

  •  A parent, guardian or other designated adult must pick up a student directly from the Center for Natural Sciences at the end of class unless arrangements for after hours supervision have been made.
