Camp Innovation

June 4, 2019— Northern Kentucky University once again offers its Camp Innovation Pathways to College Program for students in kindergarten through ninth grade this June. NKU’s Institute for Talent Development and Gifted Studies is accepting applications for the weekday program running from June 10-14.

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

Students can choose from 20 courses with a variety of interests, including Japanese Language Explorations to Harry Potter and Lego EV3 robotics. All attendees at this year’s program will participate in an interactive science presentation by the Kentucky Science Center.

Our students learn new skills and build life-long memories,” said Dr. Kimberly Clayton-Code, director of NKU’s Institute for Talent Development and Gifted Studies. “We’re excited to offer new courses and engaging content for our campers this summer.”
