PERU, IL – We are excited to share that our annual Summer Science Camp registration will begin May 30th at 10:00 am. This year’s registration is once again online at carusllc.com/camp. The FREE camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon each day from July 17 – 21 at St. Bede Academy. It is open to students entering 6th grade this fall. Slots fill up fast, so be sure to act quickly since they are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Summer Science Camp is a popular destination for students in LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam counties. The free camp allows kids hands-on fun as they participate in science and chemistry lessons that include interesting experiments and expeditions led by a team of local teachers and Carus employee volunteers. “Summer Science Camp is something we look forward to each year. Past experiences have shown us how impactful it can be for students, and we are thrilled to be able to continue to support this STEM educational initiative,” says Lyndsay Bliss, Vice President of Human Resources and Communications at Carus.
The Summer Science Camp helps encourage future success by providing participants with a foundation of highly valued STEM skills. According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, STEM occupations are projected to grow 8 percent by 2029, compared to just 3.7 percent for all occupations combined during that time period.
