Summer Science Camp

Carus’s annual Summer Science Camp provides a week filled with educational, hands-on science experiments and programs free-of-charge to students entering 6th grade in the communities surrounding our Peru, IL headquarters. Campers are introduced to principles of geology, biology, physics, chemistry and astronomy. In addition to exploring basic concepts, students learn about laboratory safety, keeping a lab notebook, and using the scientific method. Guided by local teachers and former campers in a classroom setting, students engage in experiments that enhance their understanding of the world around them, and encourage a life-long love of learning.
