Thank you to our sponsor Eastern Illinois University.
***All Scouts will share a bunk style dormitory bedroom - 2/3 per room / no more than 2 year in age difference. Community restroom has single private bathroom/shower accommodations. Adults will have a dorm room to themselves***
Check-in for the camp participants will be Sunday, June 4th in the evening and check-out will be Wednesday night, June 7th. There will be 6 program sessions to work on merit badges or NOVA awards. Extracurricular fun will happen each evening – Bowling, team building games, pool, rec center, esports, etc. Campus dorm living for 3 cool nights and 9 great meals.
$195 per Scout / $100 per adult leader. Scouts can come with their Troop or be a part of a provisional one. Registration will be open until 2 weeks before camp starts. There is no discount rate for this special camp. However.... if you pay in full additionally to go to the STEM on CAMPus UMSL camp from June 7-10, a $70 refund will be sent out the week after (parents will need to provide transportation). That is a camper savings deal at $320 for a full week of STEM on CAMPus experiences!
University faculty and staff will be present to help facilitate the activities associated with STEM Merit Badges and Nova Awards. Our camp goal is to match volunteers with their area of interest and expertise to provide these potential badge offerings:
- MERIT BADGES/NOVA -
Health Care Professions
(We will be looking to add more badges)
Requirements for the Merit Badges could be viewed at: https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/advancement-and-awards/
Requirements for the Nova Awards can be viewed at: https://www.scouting.org/stem-nova-awards/awards/scouts-bsa/
Once registered and classes are chosen, those badge/NOVA assignments are locked in. Review prereqs in the document available in the attachments box on this page. We encourage Scouts to work on their NOVA awards.
We hope this camp will not only help instill an appreciation for the STEM fields, but also create professional connections for these youth. Don’t miss this new experience at EIU!
