STEM Summer Camps

STEM Summer Camps at CMU 

We're bringing a variety of STEM summer camp options to students entering kindergarten all the way through ninth grade. Whether you're looking to get your children outdoors, want a one-day event, or are looking to fill your summer, we have a camp that fits your family. 

Please keep in mind that student interest in the topic enhances not only their experience but also that of their fellow campers. For any in-person camps, current COVID-19 safety guidelines and university recommendations will be followed. Camps are subject to change or cancellation based on updated safety guidelines, and families will be notified of any changes as early as possible. You can request a refund for consideration up to 2 weeks prior to camp. Email questions and requests to Julie at

We believe that STEM is for everyone. Please contact us at with specific financial or accessibility questions that would help make camps available for your family. 

Registration opens May 1 at 8 a.m.
