Registration opens Monday, May 23 for the 2022 Summer Science Camp sponsored by Carus LLC and St. Bede Academy. This year’s camp will run from 9 a.m. to noon daily from Monday, July 18 through Friday, July 22 at St. Bede’s Academy in Peru. Students from schools in La Salle, Bureau and Putnam counties entering sixth grade in the fall of 2022 are eligible to participate. Parents can register online; camp sites will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents often enroll their children in science camps during summer vacation to keep students engaged and give them a head start with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills, according to a Carus press release. LLC.

“Millions of children are heading to summer camps,” Carus CEO Andy Johnston said in a press release. “Not only is this one free, but it equips local students with valuable STEM skills like communication, problem solving and critical thinking. Kids can participate in super fun hands-on experiments. They build rockets, identify chemicals by flame color, go on field trips to see how science impacts our community, and many other exciting things.

Several new features are planned this year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Summer Science Camp, including the t-shirt design contest, additional camp slots and a graduation party with five special guests to be announced at a later date.

Carus Summer Science Camp is led by a team of local teachers and volunteer Carus employees who are passionate about science and STEM skills. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for STEM occupations will continue to grow with more lucrative salaries than other fields.
