Summer Camp registration opens March 10th at 6 a.m.

The Foundation provides numerous one-week educational courses for elementary, middle and high school students. The camps, which include many hands-on applications, can be helpful in boosting a student’s confidence in a subject matter where confidence is lacking or can help feed the curiosity of a child already interested in the subject. Programs are being offered with age appropriate activities for children who will be enrolled in grades 1-12 during the 2019 -2020 school year. The camp packet will be posted on February 25th.
