Summer Camps at Indiana University Kokomo: An Environment of Endless Curiosity

Who says learning has to end just because school is out for the summer? In the midst of swimming, family vacations, and enjoying the sunshine, make sure your child spends some time learning and growing as well! Your child will experience invaluable, hands-on learning during the summer camps at Indiana University Kokomo! Our summer camps offer a safe environment full of fun, engaging ways to learn for a variety of ages.

With topics ranging from health to sustainability to science to philosophy, your child will have a ball all while learning and growing on the IU Kokomo campus.
