A week on a college campus can be a life-changing experience for a young person. It offers a chance to build friendships. To engage in intellectual development and career exploration. To gain confidence in social and academic realms that sets the stage for future success.
Our campers return year after year because of connections they create with peers who share their interests and passions and with faculty and staff who nurture their creativity. This may be the first time a camper develops their own robot, film or video game or conducts an experiment of their own design. But it likely won’t be the last.
Our camps are led by a passionate, well-trained team who love to teach, laugh, and have fun. Join us for an epic summer adventure in a wide range of areas, such as:
NIU STEAM Camps are designed for students to explore and develop their interests and passions, regardless of past academic performance. You will find no request for grades and no entrance exam. We ask only that campers come open to the prospect of learning and enjoying their experience.
We strive to bring together a diverse group of campers and leaders who are curious or passionate about the topics they choose to investigate for the week.
