UIS to host summer enrichment day camp program

Springfield officials have announced that the school will host a summer enrichment day camp program for students in first through sixth grades on June 22 through June 26.

The camp, titled "Camp Invention," will be held at the Founders & University Hall on the university's campus from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Camp Invention will focus on creativity and innovation, while helping build participants' teamwork, self-esteem, persistence, and goal-setting skills.

Participants will be encouraged to use their imagination in many ways that they normally don't get to, like coming up with creative solutions real-world challenges, building and taking apart different items, and exploring several kinds of technology.

Officials request that students be registered for this program by March 20. To register, visit www.campinvention.org.
