Spaces still available in science camps for kids June 24–25

The Girls in Science and Boys’ Science Exploration Camp run concurrently, but are separate programs. Spaces are still open for both programs Saturday and Sunday, June 24–25, at UW-La Crosse.

Spots and scholarships are still available in the Girls in Science and Boys’ Science Exploration Camp Saturday and Sunday, June 24–25, at UW-La Crosse.

The camps encourage interest in science and math by giving participants hands-on learning and activities in an environment that is supportive, enriching and — most importantly — fun. The girls and boys work with UWL faculty and staff in hands-on experimentation, investigation and involvement in the fields of math and science.

In addition to the activities, the youths experience a college campus, an overnight stay in a residence hall, campus meals and social activities with peer students, university student assistants and faculty. The Girls in Science and Boys’ Science Exploration Camp run concurrently, but are separate programs.

Both camps are for kids entering grades 6-8. The $169 registration fee includes one night of lodging in a residence hall, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch, program materials and a tote bag.
