Summer Fun in Lake County

The Little Lake County Summer camp Guide contains paid listings.

A child’s mind is never done learning and working.  Sign up for a local camp to work on STEM skills and activities over the summer!  Not sure what STEM/STEAM is?  Science, Technology, Engineering (Art) and Mathematics- some of the pillars of learning and developing strong thinkers.  Not only will your child be challenged at camp, but they’ll be afforded reasonable problems that require the use of higher-level thinking skills throughout their session.  Don’t have time to put together learning opportunities to keep your kids sharp?  These camps are just the ticket!
