Summer U: Summer camps at University High School will host two three-week sessions. The first sessions will take place June 12-30, and the second session takes place July 10-28.
According to summer programs coordinator Maggie Becker, costs vary by class, but an average one-week camp costs $150.
Becker said UHS strives to be a community resource for more than just UHS students and welcomes students of all ages to utilize the programs.
“Most of the content is geared toward middle school students, but if you’re a 4th grader who is especially passionate about Minecraft or Mandarin, we would welcome you in the program,” Becker said.
According to Becker, Summer U covers everything from study skills to computer science and programming, and theatre to creative writing.
“What’s special about Summer U is that it combines the fun of a traditional day camp with the engaged learning approach and world-class teachers that University High School is known for. Campers who spend their summer with us get a true enrichment experience in a fun, laid-back high school environment,” Becker said.
New to Summer U this year, the camp will now offer a new film camp, a new yoga camp taught by a certified yoga instructor and a Raspberry Pi class for coding campers. The camp will also have new extended hours.
“Every day is different at Summer U, and that’s the beauty of it! One thing all of our camps share is access to the full, 115-acre University High School campus and all of our technology, artwork, and resources,” Becker said. “Campers get to use computers, art supplies, cameras, and even a 3D printer. Last year, one group of campers used the 3D printer to build a to-scale model of Fairbanks Hall.”
Summer U: Summer Camps will be hosted at University High School at 2825 W. 116th St in Carmel. Registration is now open. For more or to register, visit universityhighschool.org/summer
