Area kids can learn more at the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ 2018 Summer Learning Camps.

Coordinated by college faculty and hosted in awesome learning environments, EICC Summer Learning Camps provide hands-on learning experiences for kids that engage their minds and their bodies.

EICC Summer Camps can connect kids to new experiences, new skills, new friends, outdoors, indoors, teamwork, fun and challenges – each camp offers an opportunity to explore something unique and to learn practical skills they can continue to use long after summer is gone.

Many of our camps will feature outdoor activities and food will be provided. Please have campers be prepared to be outdoors – hats, sunscreen, water bottle, sturdy shoes, etc. – and let us know if the camper has any food allergies or restrictions.
