Camp Innovation

May 17, 2018– Northern Kentucky University continues its Camp Innovation Pathways to College Program for students in kindergarten through ninth grade during the summer. NKU’s Institute for Talent Development and Gifted Studies, part of the College of Education and Human Services, is accepting applications for the weekday program running from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

“Today's summer camps provide much more than s'mores and sing-alongs. They can provide lifelong memories, skills, and learning experiences,” said Dr. Kimberly Clayton-Code, director of NKU’s Institute for Talent Development and Gifted Studies. “Camp Innovation engages students in advanced content and engaged learning—while having a great time.”

Camp Innovation offers transdisciplinary courses that combine science, entrepreneurship, mathematics, visual and performing arts, social studies and technology. The classes provide the opportunity for children to share interests with other students while enhancing their intellectual, academic and creative development.

Students can select from 35 courses with topics that range from Amazing Birds of the World to Video Game Designers and Lego EV3 robotics.
