ABOUT NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY
This is our 14th season hosting Evanston, IL summer camps at our Northwestern University location. We strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our popular summer day camps held on the Northwestern University campus allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen the Northwestern University campus to host our summer academic camps for teens and kids. Northwestern University is recognized both nationally and internationally for the quality of its educational programs at all levels. Our summer camps in Evanston border the shore of beautiful Lake Michigan and lie only 12 miles north of downtown Chicago.
NU is often considered one of the best universities in the nation, according to the U.S. News and World Report. Places to check out while at Northwestern University include the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian, Mary and Leigh Block Museum, Kohl Children’s Museum, and the Grosse Point Lighthouse & Maritime Museum.
O’Hare International airport is only 15 miles west of Northwestern, making camp accessible for students joining our IL summer camp location from out of state. Evanston is also accessible by train. Come and check out our Chicago area summer camps!
